The Roving Nature Center will offer it’s Summer Nature Day Camp at Frenchtown Borough Park from July 9th-August 17th. Weekly themes include Native American life, natural disasters, animal life cycles, flying animals, habitat needs, wildlife tracking and predator adaptations. Half-day sessions for ages 4-6 and 6-10 will be led by experienced teacher-naturalists who encourage children to truly connect to nature, emphasizing natural play and using imaginations.
According to Director Marissa Mizeski, “All children need nature. All children should experience our nature camp, not just those interested in science or the natural world. In my experience, I’ve seen lives change (including my own) after positive experiences with nature. Nature helps children is countless ways and we are investing in our children by providing them with opportunities for natural play.” The Roving Nature Center accomplishes this through it’s creative lessons and enthusiastic instructors. “All of our teachers are curious and excited about exploring nature. They are positive role models to the children. They encourage creativity and questions, while understanding that connecting to nature is more important than understanding all the facts.”
