    Nature Ranger Camp – “Outdoor Explorer”

    March 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

    Burritt camps are back to provide your child with a summer full of learning and laughter! Each of the seven weeks of camp revolves around a different theme. These camps are open to children who have completed grades K-5th and are led by Burritt’s CPR-certified staff.  Our teacher to camper ratio of 1:15 ensures that your child receives individualized attention during these fun-filled days of crafts, games, hiking, nature exploration and more.

    Camp days run from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. 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 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.

    Outdoor Explorer (June 24-28, 2019)

    Registration deadline is June 18, 2019 $155 (members) $165 (nonmembers)

    Explore the Burritt historic park and wooded hiking trails as you step back in time and experience the excitement and challenges of life on the frontier before Alabama became a state.   As we explore we will learn about life on the mountain when Huntsville was founded over 200 years ago and the resources people found in the forest to help them survive. Campers will learn how to read a map, use a compass, how to build a fire,  identify animal tracks, find water and even forage for food on the trail with a trained botanist.  We will discuss the dangers in the woods and even learn the difference between venomous and nonvenomous snakes.  And don’t forget the crafts, games, and active fun that Burritt does best.
