The winter cold has settled in, we’re in the midst of the holidays, and Winter Break is just around the corner. This is always a special time of year for our staff, because this is when we are gearing up for Winter Camp. Every year, we give campers the opportunity to spend up to four days with us during this special Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum day camp and every year, we welcome more and more campers into this special program. We asked our camper families what makes this camp so special and they came up with this top five list that shows why the Nature Museum is the best winter camp destination.
Top 5 reasons scout families and leaders love Bunking with the Butterflies
1. Nature Museum Winter Camp works with your schedule.
Register your child for one, two, three, or all four days of camp according to you and your camper’s needs. Our schedule works with yours.
2. Snow, snow, snow!
We love exploring all that nature has to offer, even in our coldest months. What’s winter camp without a little fun in the snow?
3. Keep in touch with daily parent pages.
Crafted by our camp staff, these emails provide a snapshot of the day’s activities, along with fun photos, and guiding questions designed to help spark camp conversation around the dinner table.
4. Science rules!
Guided by our campers, our daily science activities connect back to your child’s classroom learning while encouraging investigation, curiosity, and wonder.
5. Up-close animal encounters.
From turtle to snakes to butterflies. There are over 50 species that call the Nature Museum home and our campers get the chance to interact with a selection of them every single day.
