Looking for something different for the kids to do this summer? Join the adventure at GreenUP Ecology Park with our Earth Adventures week-long day camps.

IMG_1105Kids who attend GreenUP’s Earth Adventure Camps won’t be bored. They’ll learn about bugs, birds, snakes and reptiles and how they fit into our natural world. They’ll be participating in games, swimming, letting their creativity run wild with fun crafts, all while making new friends. Earth Adventures camp is all about discovering our natural world and getting up-close with nature with fun, hands-on activities.

Here are just a few of the themes we’ll be learning about during Earth Adventures camp this year:
