Into the Whimsical Woods – Nature Rangers Spring Break Camp

March 30 - April 3


March 30-April 3, 2020

K – 5th Grade


Join us for a fun-filled week of exploring the Whimsical Woods at Burritt while learning about how things grow, including our imaginations.  Spring is the perfect time to explore and learn as the plants wake up from their winter’s nap. We will do a bit of gardening, plant our own seeds, learn about herbs, and make sun prints. Come ready to learn and play outside.  Monday through Wednesday, we will focus on how things grow and hiking the Whimsical Woods with our hiking sticks we create. Thursday and Friday, we will learn about tree identification and make our own dichotomy key to identify the trees in the Whimsical Woods. We will even learn about the oldest trees on our planet. Throughout the week, we will learn about the stories that children enjoyed throughout the 1800s as we grow our imaginations and do hands-on activities at story stations in The Whimsical Woods.

Camp days run from 9:00 to 2:00. Students should bring their own sack lunch, but Burritt will provide a snack each day. You may also choose to register for our extended day options with drop-off available as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick-up as late as 5:30 p.m. The cost for each day of extended day is an additional $5 each day for morning only, an additional $10 each day for afternoon only, or $15 each day for both morning and afternoon.

To better fit busy families’ schedules, we offer three attendance options. Campers may join us for all five days (March 30th-April 3rd) at a cost of $155 for Burritt members and $165 for non-members.­ Can’t make it for the whole week? Come to camp on Monday March 30th, Tuesday March 31st, and Wednesday April 1st ($93 members, $99 non-members). The other option includes the second half of the week: Thursday April 2nd and Friday the 3rd  ($62 members, $66 non-members). Registrations and payment must be received by Tuesday March 24th.  Register online at starting February 7th or Contact Alice Kirsch at or 256-512-0148 for questions and reservations.
