Nature Camp Week 2, and important holiday information!

Our second week of Nature camps is underway, and both campers and staff are having a blast! From roach races to archery to crafts, our campers are making the most out of their time here at Catoctin Creek!

While we love having visitors, the Nature Center will be closed on Sunday, July 3rd, and Monday, July 4th, in observation of Independence Day. Nature camp for next week will begin on Tuesday, July 5th. Have a safe, happy and environmentally-friendly 4th of July!


Our Creepy Crawler campers explore the fun of
cockroach races with our gentle Madagascar Hissing
Cockroaches.


Our directors Doug and Joshua try their hands (and feet) at
rock climbing with some of our Trail Blazer campers.

Our Trail Blazer campers learn how to construct an
outdoor shelter from fallen branches and natural
materials. Keep up the good work guys!

Camp hostess Trish leads our Creepy Crawlers
through a story during a beautiful day in our
forest.


Trail Blazer campers go on the prowl for aquatic animals
in the creek. We found dragonfly nymphs, tadpoles,
baby catfish, and tons of crayfish. Good job campers!
