Mammals!

There are many mammals that call Baltimore Woods their home; voles, moles, beavers, foxes, coyotes, and more. This week we will experience some close encounters with our warm blooded fauna! We’ll get to explore mammal homes, discover their habits, learn tracking skills, and use trail cams and live traps to get a good look into their secretive lives.

Do you find the world of frogs, turtles, salamanders, and snakes calling your name?  Then this camp of herpetology, or the study of reptiles and amphibians, is for you!

Yuckology: The Study of Yuck!

Come discover the gross side of nature in this camp that will explore all things ooey, gooey and downright oozy! Learn the unique and disgustingly cool ways animals protect themselves and study the art of decomposition. We’ll search the mud and muck for the yuckiest creature of the woods!

Raiders of the Lost Woods

Wilderness Survival

Ever wonder what you would do if you got lost in the woods?
