Have you ever wondered what types of animals may be living in the city? Campers learn scientific techniques for collecting insects, tracking mammals, and cataloging the birds and plants that inhabit the garden spaces within historic Roger Williams Park. Campers will also investigate animal diversity by viewing bird nests, feathers and mammal skulls, and participate in animal themed-games to round out their experience. Your camper will leave this week equipped to turn any green space into a living laboratory! Lunch is included.

Did you know that you can plant a garden with your friends and neighbors, even if you live in the city? Through games and activities, campers will investigate where their food comes from. Why should we grow and buy local produce? How does planting a garden in a forest setting help people and wildlife? Kids will taste produce grown in a working community garden and explore an edible forest garden right here in Providence. Your child will leave this engaging, fun-filled week eager to watch their own garden grow! Lunch is included.
