After a long, cold winter, we are finally seeing signs of spring! The mountains of snow have melted to make way for budding flowers, the animals have come out of hibernation to sunbathe in the lagoon, and the chirping of new life can be heard all throughout the forest. Spring also means that the school year is coming to a close, and it is time to start thinking about how our children will be spending their summer.
If you have been out for a walk at Woldumar, you know first-hand that immersing yourself in nature can have positive effects on your overall well-being. Studies show that connecting with nature in this way can help with behavioral and mental issues such as anxiety and depression, and it can also result in increased levels of creativity and productivity. These findings, in combination with values such as teamwork, physical activity, scientific exploration, and environmental stewardship, have been the inspiration for our Camp Discovery summer program.
Camp Discovery provides opportunities for children to experience a guided exploration of Woldumar’s many diverse eco-systems through weekly themed lessons. Children will leave Camp Discovery with a sense of connection to the world around them, a heightened interest in the scientific process, and memories that will last a lifetime.
