The Dunwoody Nature Center has released its complete camp schedule with full descriptions of all of its camps.
In 2013, the center will be introducing several new camps. New camps this summer include “The Science of Nature”, where children will perform experiment using nature as the subject; and “The Birds and the Trees,” featuring a roots to canopy tour of the trees of Dunwoody Park capped off by a tree climb at the end of the week led by the experts from Tree Climbers International.
Other camps include “The Art and Architecture of Nature” with a focus on using nature as an inspiration for creating innovative structures and works of art; and “Mostly Fun with a Chance of Sun” which will be dedicated to weather and feature a special visit from the Channel 11 weather van.
The center will also be bringing back some of the camper’s favorites from years past with camps such as “Unsolved Mysteries”, “We Love Bugs”, “Water Week”, “Music of Nature”, “Circle of Life”, and “Lizards, Frogs, and Snakes.”
The center will be reviving “Creek Week” where campers will spend the entire week at Dunwoody Park, Wildcat Creek. For older campers, the Junior Ranger program will once again be hosted for two separate weeks at the Island Ford facility at the Chattahoochee River.
