Critter Camp, June 24 - 28, 1-5pm

Students will learn about a wide variety of animals during this exciting week. Camp will start out with animal behavior and handling. We will learn how animals communicate with each other and how they communicate with us. We will discuss what it means to be an "exotic" pet and how we can correctly care for these fascinating critters because they need specialized care. We will then have an opportunity to see many of the exotic animals we talked about while on a tour at the Children's Nature Center. The week will close with a large animal/livestock discussion regarding how we get these giants to cooperate with us without hurting or frightening them using Dr. Temple Grandin's work as a template. Finally, students will have an opportunity to demonstrate what we learned during the week for their parents.
