2012 SUMMER KID'S CAMP HIGHLIGHTS:
Sea Otters 101
Come and learn about the furriest mammal in the animal kingdom. We will sing an otter song, play games, and learn all about their very important role in the ocean.
Do you know how to tell a wolf and cougar print apart? How about what animals hop or bound? You will learn all about the different animal tracks as you hop and bounce around trying to mimic their gait!
Come and play whale games as you learn about the amazing giants of the sea. You will find out all about their special qualities as well as learn about the differences between baleen and non-baleen whales. Come and check out what real baleen looks like!
Sharks & Skates 101
Sharks are some of the most incredible fish in our ocean. Yes, they are fish! They have 7 senses and are not afraid to use them all. Come and see what a “mermaid’s purse” really looks like.
There is a real live aquarium just footsteps from your room. The intertidal area of Cox Bay is full of amazing intertidal animals. You will get to check out this incredible area when the tide is just right!
You will get to do a rainforest scavenger hunt and learn all about the incredible characteristics of a rainforest – from the tallest cedar to the smallest banana slug!
Seals & Sea Lions 101
