Grades: 3rd- 8th Grade (open to younger ages if they are outdoorsy and don’t tire easily!)

Dates: July 26-29 (Monday – Thursday)
Times: 12:30 PM-3PM

Eco-Aquatics:

Fish, fish, and more fish!  This class is the advanced class of Creek & It’s Critters and will focus on seine nets and identification of fish types in Baird Creek.  Campers will learn the different types of fish and the effects they have on the creek and each other and the impact of native and invasive fish.  Kids are sure to spend lots of time in the water!

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.
