Adventure Day Camp: Nature CSI
August 11, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$20.00
Join Hancock Park District and become a nature detective and learn to interpret signs in nature. First, learn how a detective solves mysteries and do some fun activities learning involving finger prints. Then learn how scientists solve mysteries in nature. We will learn about animal tracks and scat, create a plaster track, learn about animal skulls and teeth, dissect an owl pellet, and learn how to interpret other signs left by animals. In the afternoon, you will learn about tracking and practice our skills out on the trail. Finally, a crime has been committed at the Discovery Center. Use your knowledge from the day to solve the mystery and find the culprit. Snacks will be provided, but bring a sack lunch and a reusable water bottle. Insect repellent and sunscreen are optional.
This is a one-day camp held on Friday, August 11 and is open to ages 6-12. Register with $20 per child by 9 AM on Thursday, August 10. To receive a free t-shirt, campers must be registered by 9 AM on Wednesday, August 2 and attend three of the August Adventure Day Camps.
