OLWC Nature Day Camp

This summer the Oswego Lake Watershed Council is excited to be partnering with Lake Oswego Community Schools to offer a brand new Nature Day Camp brought to you by former Tryon Creek and Portland Water Bureau educators.

When:  June 20 – 24 OR July 18 – 22
Time: Monday – Friday, 8am – 12pm
Where:  Uplands Elementary School  Room  C-29
Ages : 4 – 6 ( PreK – Kindergarten)
Cost : $250 (scholarships available)
Minimum Participants : 5
Max : 10

This Nature Day Camp will provide opportunities for 4 to 6 year olds to connect with nature through a variety of activities including guided exploration of Springbrook Park, nature based songs, games, and craft projects. Each day of the 5 day session will have a theme that will incorporate ecosystem functions like soil, water, and the wildlife that lives in the urban forest.

Daily activities will include an opening circle activity with songs and a story, followed by a themed hike through Springbrook Park, outdoor games and a theme appropriate craft or science activity. We will finish with a closing circle where participants share their experiences from the day and songs from the morning are revisited. There will be a snack break halfway, but we request kids to bring their own snacks to avoid the risk of potential food allergies.

This Community Schools program is not restricted to participants in Lake Oswego.
