Nature camps are offered for children ages 4 through 12. Fernwood’s forests, pond, river, and prairie serve as the classrooms for these day camps. Hikes along nature trails, fun games, educational activities, and crafts open children to the wonders of nature while encouraging appreciation of the plants and animals of Michiana. Children 9 through 12 years old also experience overnight campouts at Fernwood.
Art camps are available for children ages 6 through 16. This year’s theme is TBA with campers using Fernwood’s beautiful gardens and natural areas to inspire the creation of diverse mixed media projects including ceramics, tie dye, drawing/painting, sculpture, and much more inspired by world-wide traditions. On the last day of each session, parents are invited to a gallery showing of all the children’s wonderful creations. All sessions run Tuesday through Friday. If you have any questions, please call Head Naturalist, Wendy Jones, at ext. 220.
