Zion Nature Center’s 2012 nature camps were a great success, with 112 campers attending five week-long camp sessions. Nature Navigators (Grades K-3) enjoyed an action-packed week of outdoor adventures, games, crafts, and up-close interactions with the wild animals that call Indiana home. Biologist Boot Campers (Grades 4-5) conducted hands-on science experiments and embarked upon outdoor adventures where they learned wilderness survival skills.
Nature Navigators dissected owl pellets and identified the bones they found inside. Pictured: Cooper Wood identifies bones from a vole skeleton he found inside his pellet.
Biologist Boot Campers went on a Wilderness Survival Scavenger Hunt, and built their own outdoor shelters in the Zion Nature Sanctuary. Pictured left to right:Maggie Donovan, Anne Roy, Kyle Suico, Hannah Hitch, Manning Smitson, Nathan Sevilla, Hudson Harreld, Caleb Wood, and GinelleSuico.
