Winter Break Camp

Campers chill out with fun science experiments during Winter Break Camp! Kids explore states of matter by turning liquids into solids and investigate adaptations that allow plants and animals to survive cold, icy winters. Campers also will warm up with visits to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory tropical and desert collections to compare the plants growing in these environments. Games, crafts, and other hands-on activities round out each day.

Get Ready for Camp!

We are excited for all of our Adventure Campers to join us for a week of fun! Every day will be packed with entertaining hands-on activities. Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare for camp:

• Pack a smock or old t-shirt to put on over regular clothes while working on messy projects.

•Bring a water bottle and clothing appropriate for outdoor adventures.

•Pack two healthy snacks and a lunch—please do not pack food items containing nuts of any kind.

•A positive attitude! Adventure Camps provide each camper with a fun and safe space to meet new friends and explore new ideas.
