Held out of the Cooper Marsh Conservation Area and Visitor’s Centre near South Lancaster from March 11th to the 15th, this day camp provides children age six to eleven with wonderful opportunities to experience science and nature hands-on and up close.

Day campers have the option of participating in individual day sessions or for signing up for an entire week of non-stop fun.

Lisa Migneault, Education and Outreach Programmer at the River Institute says, “It is all about combining fun, science and the experience of discovering new things in the great outdoors. Each day is a brand new adventure with themed activities planned throughout the week”. ·
