Magpie Nature Camp helps kids find joy in the great outdoors, teaching activities that empower them to connect to nature and find value in stewardship. Campers will learn about wilderness safety and awareness, edible and medicinal plants, fish and wildlife, and survival skills like shelter building, fire starting, and bow and arrow making. We will deepen our connection to nature, build confidence and resilience outdoors, learn ancient skills, and have fun!
Magpie Nature Camp will have 4 cohorts of campers (the same as 2020). Each cohort will run for a half day (morning or afternoon), for 5 days. Cohorts keep our group numbers small, have kids of a similar age and ability together, and ensure our hands-on activities have appropriate supervision.
Cohort 1: Ages 8, 9, & 10. 9:00am to 12:00pm
Cohort 2: Ages 10, 11, & 12. 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Cohort 3: Ages 8, 9, & 10. 9:00am to 12:00pm
Cohort 4*: Ages 11, 12, & 13. 1:00pm to 4:00pm
*This cohort is more advanced, for our older, returning campers.
Cost is $75.00 per week per child, PLUS $50.00 per family for a 2021 Fish and Game membership. (Cost does not apply if you are already a member. Membership needs to be renewed annually.)
A single child attending camp: $75.00 + $50.00 family membership fee = $125.00 total
Two children attending camp: $75.00 + $75.00 + $50.00 family membership fee = $200.00 total
Payments will be made prior to camp, in July.
