Nature Discovery Summer Camps 2022 Registration Form
With support from the New Mexico Outdoor Equity Fund and the Lineberry Foundation, the Silver City Watershed Keepers is offering a free Nature Discovery Summer Camp for rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders. The summer camp is designed and delivered by professional educators to provide campers with a connection to nature through discovery and exploration of the natural world, including native plants, insects, birds, fish, mammals, stream ecology, and watershed health. Campers will also learn about our cultural history through field trips to the Dragonfly Site, Mimbres Cultural Heritage Site, and the Mimbres River. Activities include hiking, nature observation and journaling, art projects, and more!
The camp will be held Monday through Friday from 9 am - 3 pm during the month of June. Four camp sessions are scheduled for June 6 - 10 at Big Ditch Park in Silver City; June 13 - 17 at Big Ditch Park in Silver City; June 20 - 24 at Bayard Public Library in Bayard; and June 27 - July 1 at Bayard Public Library in Bayard.
The camp is free. Free lunches and snacks will also be provided. We are working with the school districts to provide free transportation for campers to/from their homes if needed.
