The Platte River Safari and Flying Higher Camps are day camps where children can learn about the Platte River and other natural areas at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. Campers take part in a variety of hands-on activities that include natural and physical science, language arts, history, agriculture, music and art.
“Campers have a blast exploring nature at these programs,” said Beka Yates, Education Manager at Audubon’s Rowe Sanctuary. “They get to wade in the water of a nearby wetland while searching for invertebrates plus a lot of other fun activities.”
Platte River Safari Camp is for any student currently in grades 2 through 5 for the 2020-2021 school year and will occur June 15-17, June 22-24, June 29-July 1, and July 6-8, 2021. Flying Higher is a hands-on, ecology camp geared for kids currently in grades 6 through 8 for the 2020-2021 school year and will occur July 13-July 15.
Each camp session will be limited to 15 campers and will run from 8:30 am-3:30 pm Tuesday-Thursday. Campers must bring a sack lunch and a mask every day.
