Times: 12:30 PM -3PM

Creek & Critters:

Put on your water shoes or boots and jump into our exciting week in the creek! This week will be full of games, great books, and lots of hands-on fun for everyone, including the use of dip nets and seines to catch fun critters in Baird Creek. This camp will be sure to make a splash with your Kiddos! Updated from last year with more activities and fun for an even greater learning experience. We will have both our K-2 and 3-5 teachers available for each class so that all grade levels experience camp at their level and we provide a greater convenience for parents.

Daily Needs:

Just like the crayfish in Baird Creek, a day of fun will often include mud, muck, and dirt. Please send an old pair of shoes that are acceptable for walking, hiking, and exploring the creek. We advise that each child comes with a change of clothes each day so that we can send them home dry and keep your car from looking like a nature habitat itself. Each day there will be snack time so please send a snack and a refillable water bottle labeled with your child’s first and last name. We recommend that you also send a small towel for cleaning up and a backpack to carry everything in! On light rain days, we advise that your child also bring a plastic poncho; on heavy rain days/stormy days, activities will be held indoors. Every day of summer camp at Baird Creek will involve lots of walking and exploring. Dress your child appropriately and spray-on sunscreen before they leave home each day!

Teachers:

Ms. Allie has a degree in Biology with a focus on fish and a degree in Education which she puts to use in the De Pere school district as a high school Science teacher. This will be Ms. Allie’s fourth summer sharing her knowledge on all things about the environment. Ms. Allie is passionate about Baird Creek and what we do and is excited to increase campers’ passion for the outdoors.

Ms. Acacia has great joy in spending time with kids and teaching.  This will be her fourth summer of teaching summer camps and her enthusiasm for what she’s teaching and the outdoors provides success for each and every kiddo attending camp!
