Little Explorers Can Experience Great Moments!
Half Day Camp for Children Ages 4 and 5 (10am – 12pm)

Our experienced counselors are caring and dedicated to providing safe adventures for your child. Each day’s activities will nurture your child’s sense of wonder and connection to the environment, helping them to feel at home in nature. Limited to no more than 11 campers per session, campers will explore Baltimore Woods, learn about the various plants and animals found in the woods, play nature-related games and make nature crafts.

Session 1 – July 8-12

Just Add Water!

Play, discover, and get wonderfully wet this week at the woods! This week’s adventure includes plenty of time exploring our creeks and ponds in search of frogs, crayfish, water bugs, and other friends who love the water. Come check out the pond and streams at Baltimore Woods – it will be a splashing good time!

Session 2 – July 15-19

Fairies, Elves and Trolls, Oh My!

Join us as we discover the magical world of the wee folk! We will learn about these little spirits of the forest through stories and imaginative play. While exploring the trails we will search for the best habitats to build our new friends’ homes.

Session 3 – July 22-26

Wheel of Life

From birds, to frogs, to flowers, life cycles are everywhere! Join us on the journey of watching plants and animals change as we observe nature around us. From fun life cycle relay races to caterpillar scavenger hunts we will be traveling around and around again as we transform into these fun creatures!

Session 4 – July 29 – August 2

Nature’s Little Architects

Calling all budding architects! This week we’ll be busy as beavers as we learn how to design and build natural structures just like all the animals do here at Baltimore Woods. We’ll hike down to the stream to build beaver dams, weave bird nests in the forest, and dig dens of our very own, so grab your hard hat and let’s get building!

Session 5 – August 5-9

Frogs, Toads, and Salamanders

Ribbit! Ribbit! Our amphibian friends are calling you to come hop around Baltimore Woods. We will spend a week learning and exploring as we search for these quick critters. Where do they live? What do they eat? How are they alike and different? You’ll be an amphibian expert by the end of this week!

Session 6 – August 12-16

Sensational Senses

Using our 5 senses we are going to explore the world around us just like the animals here at Baltimore Woods. We will be feeling and seeing the natural world, play games using our sense of hearing like a bat, and walking around the forest like a fox using our sense of smell. Join us on a sensational adventure through the eyes, ears, noses, and whiskers of the animals!

Session 7 – August 19-23

Insect Safari

Bug jar? Check! Butterfly net? Check! Need to explore the outdoors? Check! Sounds like you’re all set for a week of adventure as we get up close and personal with the world of insects. We’ll race after butterflies and dragonflies, scour the grasses for praying mantis, flip logs for beetles, and search the stream for stoneflies. It’s going to be a buggy bonanza!
