Cambridge kids to get back to nature this March Break

January 16, 2017 by  

This March Break, Cambridge students will have a special opportunity to have fun learning about the natural world around them.

The Charitable Research Reserve will be hosting a March Break Eco Camp that will offer children a chance to discover the old growth forest. Campers will explore meadows and wetlands, streams and other wildlife habitats. They’ll learn how to identify animal tracks and shelters, observe migrating birds, create naturally themed art, record their observations and activities in their own journal, visit North House and much more. Comb binding can be used to create journals, field guides, log books and more for a hands-on activity such as this.

The camp has been designed to appeal to those from ages 6 to 12, and it will run from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm each day. Both morning and afternoon extended care is available at an additional charge for those families that need it.

The rare March Break Eco Camp will be held in its research reserve, which is located at 1679 Blair Road in Cambridge. It will run from March 13th until March 17th, and the cost per child is $175.00 each. Anyone who would like to register their son or daughter or find out more about the program is asked to contact the organization’s Lead Educator and Program Facilitator at 519-650-9363, extension 123.
