    Nature Rangers Camp: Geology Really Rocks

    July 17 - July 21

    Did you know there is gold in the hills of Alabama? Join us to discover where and when the Southern gold rush happened.  Let’s investigate different types of rocks right here in Alabama. Campers will become Junior Geologists as they explore, hike, view a real coal mine, learn about and make their own fossil, and take home their own geode. Your child will start their own rock collection and pan for “gold” and gems in our sluice. We will also go on an interactive Treasure Hunt at Gold Mountain. Come have an adventure as we explore rocks and learn about the history of gold mining in Alabama.

    Burritt camps provide your child with a summer full of learning and laughter! Each week 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 7:45 a.m. and pick-up as late as 5:30 p.m. Morning extended day is $5 per day, and afternoon extended day is $10 per day.

    Cost: $155 (members) $165 (nonmembers)
