Summer Camp 2019

Nature Play

Wild Things - This week of half-day camp is a great way to introduce your little ones to the wonder and excitement of the outdoors. Each day we explore another part of Severson Dells, playing outdoors and learning about the many plants and animals that call this place home. Expect your child to get good and dirty as he or she explores. Ages 4-6. 9:00 AM - Noon.

Session 1 : June 10-14 Session 2: July 8-12

Severson Explorers

Peek-in-the-Creek - If there is one word that best describes this week of camp, it is “wet!” Every day we are at/in the creek. Each day we explore another area of science as it relates to the stream that flows through Severson Dells: biology, chemistry, physics, engineering. Play features prominently through it all. On the last day, we head downstream on the much-anticipated slosh through the Hall Creek. Ages 7-11. 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Session 1: June 17-22 Session 2: July 5-19

Forest Fantasy - Come and learn about the mythical creatures that call Severson Dells home! Each day is spent in “magical” activities that showcase the fantastical around us every day. From potion-making to invisibility, we have something for everyone, including a visit to Troll Hollow. This week of camp engages your child’s imagination and creativity in discovering the fanciful and factual elements in nature. Ages 8-12. 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Session 1: June 24-28

Jr. Biologist - Perfect for the young nature enthusiast and scientist in your family! Each day we explore a different “-ology” (dendrology, ornithology, entomology, etc.). Ages 11-14. 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Session 1: July 29-Aug. 2
