March Break Day Camp

Daily Themes

Each day children will explore the outdoors and learn about life in the Rouge. Crafts, activities and games will help bring each topic to life.


Monday: Winter Weeds and Trees

We’ll explore the trails and learn to identify winter trees, look for winter food sources and fire starting materials.

Tuesday: Winter Birds and Empty Nests

We’ll explore the trails and learn to identify winter birds and their nests, set up feeding stations for our feathered friends and look for signs of predators like owls and hawks.

Wednesday: Winter Evergreen Plants and Mushrooms

We’ll look for plants that are still green during winter and learn why and how that happens. We’ll also look for winter mushrooms and fungus. What can they be used for?

Thursday: Winter Tracks and Animals

Who’s lurking in the woods and walking across the fields? We’ll learn about the various animals still active in the winter and talk about how predators hunt and find prey in the winter too.

Friday: Evidence of Winter Insects

Where do all the insects go in the winter? How do they survive? We’ll search for evidence of winter insect life.
