Earth Focus Day Camp
Provided byEarth Focus Day Camp, UW- Madison Arboretum
Earth Focus Day Camp helps children develop an understanding of how ecosystems work, nurtures a sense of wonder for nature, and guides children as they explore the habitats, plants, and animals of the Arboretum. Children are empowered to be a positive influence on their world. Our naturalists are enthusiastic and experienced, but the real teacher is our most treasured resource: the land. Join us to learn, grow, and be a part of this special place.The day camp consists of five programs: Learning Together is for preschool-aged children, Young Explorers is for kindergartners, Explorers is for elementary-aged school children, Eco-Trekkers is for middle school-aged youth, and Afternoon Adventures is for elementary and middle school ages.
Campers can stay all day by combining a morning session and an afternoon session, with a lunch session in the middle.
Camp activities include outdoor discovery hikes and observations, hands-on science exploration, and nature free play. Returning campers will find new and exciting experiences every year. Children are encouraged to ask questions, play, and share, create, discover, construct, and cooperate.
