Creepy Crawly Safari – Half-day Camp

Ages 6-8 | $185

Try your hand at fishing in Mesa Creek to learn what kinds of insects, animals, and fish call it home.  We’ll also investigate creepy crawly critters in the rest of the park to see who else depends on this watershed.  From worms that wiggle to cork bobber boats that float, get ready for fishing fun.  Hike from the creek to the mesa top!  Games, songs, art, stories and adventure will be part of each day, helping us understand how to take care of the creepy-crawly members of our wild world.
