2013 Spring Intersession and Track Out Camps
|Our 2013 Spring Camps feature two brand new camp themes! Piedmont Wildlife Center’s spring intersession and track-out camps serving Durham, Orange and Wake counties are outdoor adventures that are designed to stimulate curiosity and awaken enthusiasm for the natural world. Join us as we explore and deepen our connection to nature and to one another by exploring and discovering the world around us. If you know of 5 children available during a different week, contact us and we’ll design a camp just for them! Listed camps are for campers ages 5-14.|
Come and learn about the relationships among wildlife and people. Prepare yourself for encounters with insects, amphibians, birds, trees, wildflowers, mammals, and more. We will work on special projects where we help take care of the forest and we will explore the area to find out what kinds of animals and plants live nearby. Through these explorations and experiences, we will unveil some of the incredible secrets of the natural world.
April 1 – 5 Owl Eyes Awareness Camp -FULL – Waitlist!
In this camp, we will watch the behaviors of birds and learn how to understand the secret language that they speak. We will discover what the birds can teach us about what is happening in our own backyards. In this new adaptation of our popular owl-eyes camp, we will also have a special focus on awareness techniques that sharpen our senses for exploration and discovery. With playful games, we’ll stretch our senses and our minds eye to explore our connection with the landscape in and around us.
