Camp Young Naturalist Adventure

There's always time for both learning and play at the lake.

Young Naturalist Adventures will spend their time exploring the marvels of science. Campers can expect activities that challenge them to problem solve, create, design, and work together to develop solutions in an outdoor setting. We will develop team building skills and incorporate STEAM principles throughout the camp.

2018 Camp Themes
The Magic of Science
Campers will be awed by the magic of science during their stay with us at Canyon Ferry. Expect your young scientist to conduct experiments each day that they are at camp. They will experience the magic of each experiment and then learn the science behind it.

The Wonders of Science
Campers will be challenged to investigate different wondrous experiments each day. The goal of each experiment is to engage your young scientist in the process of science. Expect your camper to conduct an experiment and then attempt to make sense of each wonder using the scientific method.
