City of Gainesville- Earth Academy Day Camp (Spring Break)
Theme: Guardians of the Planet
Earth Academy Day Camp awakens your child's innate curiosity while encouraging an environmental ethic and appreciation of the natural world! This nature-based day camp is held at Morningside Nature Center's 416-acre nature sanctuary and uses hands on fun to focus attention on natural and cultural history. Instructors are career educators and science professionals experienced in working with children. In addition to a variety of theme-based, multidisciplinary projects campers have fun with character development activities demonstrating trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Camp tends to fill quickly and space is limited so be sure to register early!
Seventh through twelfth graders are eligible for the Junior Naturalist program, which uses the skills and talents of the older youth to enhance the Earth Academy experience for the younger children.
