2017 Program Dates and Themes

EcoDetectives

Monday, April 3rd & 10th

Do cows dream? Can a snake dig holes? Does moss only grow on the north side of a tree? Nature mysteries will be debunked by EcoDetectives! Campers will test their sleuthing skills by looking for animal tracks around Rock Eagle.  

Super Soil & Dirt Dirt

Tuesday, April 4th & 11th

Campers will get their hands dirty learning about gardening, plant life, and pollinators. While learning about “good” and “bad” bugs, campers will have the opportunity to meet some of Rock Eagle’s very own creepy crawlies.

Animal Adventurer

Wednesday, April 5th & 12th

Hop, slither, or fly behind the scenes of our animal laboratories and learn how to care for Rock Eagle’s education animals! From feeding to animal enrichment, we do it all during “Keeper” Camp! To celebrate our animal friends, campers  will morph into their favorite feathered, furry or scaly creature to participate in our annual  EcoAdventure animal parade.

Blast to the Past

Thurday, April 6th & 13th

Travel back in time as we learn about Native Americans and the early homesteaders that lived at Rock Eagle. Campers will play    historic games, participate in a traditional campfire, and help make a waddle and daub hut. Campers will enjoy a picnic lunch at Rock Eagle’s living history site.

H2O Explorer

Friday, April 7th & 14th

Prepare to get wet as we spend the whole day in and around Rock Eagle Lake. With fishing, canoeing, and a creek hike on the agenda, things are sure to get wet & wild.
