Spring Nature Day Camp – for children in Grades 3 through 5

Spring in Maine brings plenty of surprises!  We could have snow….we could have rain…we could have sunny skies and warm temperatures!  No matter the weather, we will celebrate the changing of the seasons through activities like searching for tadpoles in pond and salamanders under logs, go on a geocaching treasure hunt and learn to cast if there is open water for fishing.  Held at the YMCA Camp of Maine on Cobbossee Lake (Winthrop, ME), each day of camp is six hours of outdoor and indoor fun!

Two Sessions to choose from:

Session 1:  Tuesday, April 19, and Wednesday, April 20, 2022 – 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
