Earth Camp will take place at the Staten Island Museum on the grounds of Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Gardens. Campers will study pond life, investigate animal tracks, and learn about entomology. Over the course of two weeks, kids will explore the local wetlands and woodlands on walking trips to nearby green spaces. In the afternoons, campers will spend time indoors building science skills and connecting with the natural world through the Museum’s collections and hands-on STEAM activities. Each camper will receive their own field discovery kit and keep a scientific journal to record daily observations.
