Winter Camp registration is open!

Nature doesn’t take a break in the winter, and neither does camp at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum! We love to teach and learn about nature in all weather—even snow! This winter break, the Nature Museum will be hosting its sixth annual Winter Camp, embracing all that Mother Nature has to offer during our coldest months. Campers ages 4-8 can join the Museum for one to four fun-filled days of nature-inspired art, track hunting, unstructured play, music and movement, science activities, live animal encounters and (if the weather cooperates) snow play! Daily themes include: Patterns in nature, Adaptations for survival (both plants and animals), and Science and Engineering practices like sled building! A healthy snack will be provided to campers daily.
