CEED Nature Adventure Camp 2023
CEED Nature Adventure Camp – 8 Weeks July 3rd – August 25th
For children entering grades Kindergarten-7th Grade in September 2023
(for Teens, see our Leadership Program)
CEED Nature Adventure Camp is expanding again! Your child can now attend for one week or eight weeks, from July 3 through August 25. This spring, we welcomed Bob Polcha to the CEED team as Camp Director. Bob has decades of experience running summer camps in our community.
The first four weeks in July will be at Post Morrow Foundation’s property on Bay Road in Brookhaven, where children will explore Beaver Dam Creek, Bellport Bay, the estuary, and surrounding woodlands.
Beach Day! New this year. Weeks 2-4 will include Beach day at Smith’s Point County Park on Fridays!
Farm and Nature. During weeks 5 and 6, we will be exploring Mama Farm and CEED’s Washington Lodge preserve. Your child will not only experience nature these weeks at CEED, but will also learn what it’s like to live on a farm.
Science and Engineering. Also new this year, weeks 7 and 8 will be all about nature-related science and engineering at CEED. Children will be using our natural environment as a laboratory. Science and engineering are happening all around us, not just in the classroom. We might build a fishing pole with a paperclip and dental floss or look at plankton through a microscope. Your child will look at the natural world in a fun and exciting new way after this experience!
No matter which week you choose, you can count on your child coming home tired, maybe a little dirty, and full of stories about the wonders of nature. Many weeks book completely, so don’t delay.
