About The Event

Collecting to Learn

This week is all about collecting different types of nature that inhabit Whittemore's wildlife. Explore different natural collections each day; insects, fossils, rocks, leaves, flowers & photos. Campers will get to have fun discovering our natural world through games, catch & release,  observation and creating their very own collections.

With the summers getting hotter we are adding Sprinkle Time - Free Play while cooling off in the Gardens of Whittemore.
