The Arboretum Explorer Camp is the perfect place for budding naturalists, animal lovers, and young outdoor enthusiasts. Join us on the beautiful grounds of the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum as we learn about the soil and worms, insects, birds, and plants. Campers will hear stories, learn to "put on their owl eyes and fox feet," build a terrarium, visit the Food Forest and pollinator meadow on JMU's east campus, learn to identify local birds and trees, take an insect safari, and do lots of Arboretum exploring! Instructors will include Arboretum staff, JMU students, and local naturalists.
