Come explore the natural sciences with W.K. Kellogg Biological Station’s Kids Being Scientists day camp!  Campers will become an ornithologist on Monday, a wildlife biologist on Wednesday, and a botanist on Thursday while exploring the natural world we live in. We will be unlocking the fun of science with hands-on experiments, and up-close encounters with amphibians, birds and wildlife. Each week we will be conducting science experiments, exploring how art and science work together, playing games, singing songs, swimming, and fishing! Here’s a sneak peek at a few of our activities for the week:

  • Explore biology by hunting for habitats– Get ready to explore!  We will spend the day visiting different habitats and discovering the plants and animals that live there.
  • Wild about birds – Become an ornithologist and study birds and their amazing feats!  Let’s learn about wild and captive birds. Photos will be taken with the Sanctuary Raptors.
  • Wonders of wildlife – Become a wildlife biologist and set up locations for spotting wildlife at night!
  • Water detectives – Did you know that we live in a watershed?  Campers will solve mysteries about the water in our communities.  We will investigate lakes and wetlands and build boats to go exploring!
