Opportunities for a sunny, nature-filled summer

Summer is right around the corner, and you know what that means watermelon, sandals, and Summer Camps!
At Charlotte Nature Museum, we offer many different Camps for little explorers and theyre filling fast! If I had to choose a favorite, I couldnt pick just one because we offer so many great options.
However, two of the Camps I really adore are Wildlife Rainbow for preschoolers and Nature Navigators for rising 1st graders. Both of these Camps offer a chance for your little ones to explore nature through a different lens.
In Wildlife Rainbow, each day is a different color and Campers are encouraged to wear an article of clothing or accessory with the color of the day. Then Campers explore our Paw Paw Nature Trail, Fort Wild and nearby Freedom Park to look for animals that reflect the designated color I Spy with a twist!
Like Wildlife Rainbow, Nature Navigator immerses your Camper in nature to explore colors but also to examine how nature works all around us, from habitats to life cycles. Indoors, Campers become junior curators, feeding the Museums ambassador species, including Queen Charlotte the groundhog and Pete, the Texas tortoise. They even build a bee hive piñata, adding another layer each day, and at the end of the week they bust the piñata filled with prizes and treats.
From art to dinosaurs, we have many opportunities for your little one to have a sunny, nature-filled summer. We hope to see your little Camper this summer at Charlotte Nature Museum!
