Each year campers will focus on a new theme for the week, such as reptiles, birds, or plant cycles. On Thursday the campers should bring old shoes for stream exploration. An experienced Shaver's Creek staff member and a leader-in-training will guide each group.

Come ready for action, rain or shine. We will meet each morning at the picnic area on the corner of Park Avenue and University Drive.

This new camp replaces and expands on the tradition of longtime favorite Raptor Camp. Inspired by the birds of prey and other resident animals at Shaver's Creek and the trails surrounding the center, we will spend time exploring the natural world and observing the details hidden in what seems to be ordinary. Then we will develop various types of artwork  based on our discoveries. The week will end with a gallery walk for families and friends of the campers.

Cost: $155 nonmembers/$125 members
