A flock of ornithologists packed camp on Tuesday! Campers investigated different types of bird beaks, made bird feeders, dissected owl pellets, and, met some birds brought by a fantastic guest speaker- Nature’s Educators!
On Wednesday the campers became meteorologists and learned about many types of weather. We made mini rain and storm clouds while investigating how storms develop, identified different cloud types, and made some of our own weather- measuring and detecting tools. We wrapped up the day by learning about some extreme weather that can happen in Colorado- tornadoes and volcanoes!
We rocked Friday by becoming geologists. We acted out the rock cycle- how rocks form and change over time (millions of years!). Campers learned to identify some Colorado rocks, and even got to find a “rock friend” to take home.
