Nature Nuts

Designed for students entering grades 2-7, Nature Nuts provides a unique opportunity for young people to explore ecosystems, discover lab science and create natural artwork!

Participants will spend mornings outside exploring woods and wetlands on Darlington's beautiful 500-acre campus, then head inside for hands-on art and science lab activities. We will even use our naturalist skills on an exciting local field trip!

Note: This camp will take place at Thatcher Hall. Lunch will be provided.
