Middle School Field Science Camp
Join us for a week of adventure, science, and fun as we investigate the deep history the Southwest and examine the role of natural resources on the development of local communities and cultures. Campers will enjoy the canyons, mountains, valleys, and rivers, collecting evidence of animal populations, plant life, and water resources to understand the science behind survival and the impact on the environment. We will visit multiple sites dating back to the ancestral puebloans, follow the development of local ranching and mining, and learn the survival mechanisms used and challenges faced when working within the demands of the natural environment. We’ll wrap up the week with an overnight adventure, putting our survival skills and knowledge of our environment to good use!
