Event: Summer 2018 Childrens’ Nature Camp

Summer 2018 Childrens’ Nature Camp

Summer 2018 Childrens’ Nature Camp – With Lyon Education Staff

What: The Lyon Arboretum’s Education Department would like to invite your children to join us for one or both weeks of our two week summer camp, learning, exploring, and creating in the Mānoa rainforest! For our Summer program, we will be focusing on ART AND SCIENCE and will incorporate an array of activities including, but not limited to environmental science experiments, nature-based art and craft projects, a special keiki cooking class (on 6/6), hiking throughout our gardens and forests, and gardening in our Children’s Garden.

We hope that the experiences your child has at our Nature Camp helps to foster a positive relationship with the environment and each other, and the idea that each of us can explore, learn in and enjoy nature — while also being good stewards of its natural resources. It promises to be a week of fun-filled learning and adventure that your child will always remember!

When: This summer we will be offering two weeks of camp. Each week will be unique, and children can sign up to attend one or both weeks.
