    Nature Rangers Camp: Keepers of the Earth

    June 19 - June 23

    Discover the culture, crafts, and lifestyle of the Southeastern Indians.  Learn about early Indians of the Paleo, Woodland and Mississippian eras as well as the more recent Cherokee that lived right here in Alabama. Campers will make and play games, listen to legends and stories, learn about American Indian tools and skills, create traditional arts and crafts, and understand how the Indian people used natural resources.  End the week by recalling what it was like for the people who lived through the “Trail of Tears” during Alabama’s Gold Rush era.

    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.

    Registration deadline: June 13

    Cost:  $155 (members) $165 (non-members)
