Camp River Bend- Summer Camps


It’s time to register for Summer Camps at River Bend Nature Center. Join in on all the cool activities and make new friends as you explore nature and science! Camps are Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 12 pm. We have four camps to choose from this summer. You can come to one or all four!


Nature Trackers: June 11th-June 15th


Become a Nature Tracker! Campers will go on a hunt for animal tracks, discover forest and river ecosystems, build a critter habitat, examine leaves, go on a seed scavenger hunt, examine and learn cloud types, measure the temperature, learn how to identify plants, animals, and trees, and plant native plants!


Discover STEAM!: June 25th-June 29th


Discover science, technology, engineering, art, and math through creative hands-on activities on our nature trail. Build an earth shelter, use natural materials to create art, examine soils and create your own clay for sculpting, and construct a clinometer to measure a tree!


Science Detectives: July 9th-13th

(The 4-5-year-old section of camp is FULL, the 6-12-year-old section still has spots available)

Explore a new branch of science every day. Extract DNA, make your own bio column, build a renewable energy model, explore the world of electric circuits, create your own slime, and build a battery!


Destination Innovation: July 23rd-27th


Like to design, create, and build? Build a geodesic dome, construct a Newton’s cradle, build your own catapult and launch marshmallows, and build your own paper rocket!
