Connecticut Audubon Adventures: The “Not-So-Bummer” Summer
Connecticut Audubon’s virtual summer camp experience brings its nature-based programs to homes and backyards
June 3, 2020 — The Connecticut Audubon Society’s summer camp is going virtual this year with Connecticut Audubon Adventures: The “Not-So-Bummer Summer.”
With regular camp cancelled because of the pandemic, this unique camp alternative offers interactive, live, nature-themed explorations and activities for ages 6 through 10. The program of online and outdoor adventures, designed and run by Connecticut Audubon’s highly experienced team of summer camp directors and educators, is a great way for kids to have fun at home this summer while connecting with the natural world.
The weekly Adventures program runs Monday through Friday, June 15 through August 21, from 9 a.m. to noon. The time-tested camp programs, adapted for online and backyards, will spark curiosity and sharpen thinking skills through experimentation, exploration, art and citizen science. There will be many opportunities throughout to share findings and socialize with others.
Different themes each week keep the program fresh and appealing to many interests. Past Connecticut Audubon favorites such as Fantastic Flyers and Wacky Water Wonders are offered along with new ones like Animal Senses and Digging In. For all subjects, a good balance of engaging hands-on activities, combined with investigative STEAM learning, ensure it will be the solution to a not-so-bummer summer experience that exercises minds while having fun.
The cost of Connecticut Audubon Adventures is $150 per week for CAS members and $175 for non-members, with discounted pricing if registering for five weeks, or all 10.
