Nature Camp

collectingGARNA offers a summer nature camp for kids ages 5 through 10. Our goal is to teach about local flora and fauna while having fun in the outdoors. Sessions take place on public lands in the Upper Arkansas Valley and activities include hiking, birding, journaling, sketching, splashing, experimenting and much, much more!

Campers learn about animal adaptations for living in the high country, Arkansas River habitats, and warrior plants in the high country. Activities like boat making and river ditch races, bug collecting, water sampling, and ecology scavenger hunts are all great ways for kids to enjoy a summer day while learning about the world around them. This is the 4th year of Nature Camp and although camp locations might be the same, campers will experience new and fun activities each year!
