Earth Science ROCKS!

Monday, April 2nd

Campers will start the week off by channeling their inner ROCK-star. Journey with us as we investigate the mysteries of the deep earth. We'll learn about different rocks and minerals and discuss fossils and how they form.

“Talon-ted” Aviators & Feathered Friends

Tuesday, April 3rd

Get ready to soar as we explore the wonderful ways objects and animals fly, glide, or float through the air. Making kites, shooting off rockets, and meeting Rock Eagle’s raptors are just some of the fun activities that will take place.

Kids for Conservation

Wednesday, April 4th

Campers will learn about ways to conserve and protect our natural resources. With a focus on water, campers will explore their local watershed on a creek hike. Using dip nets, campers will test the health of our water and discover ways to keep our community pollution free!

Farm to Fork

Thursday, April 5th

Rock Eagle introduces Farm to Fork, a day campers can really sink their teeth into! We will spend time in the teaching garden, getting our hands dirty. Throughout the day, we will learn about Georgia agriculture. Campers will discover where their food comes from and get to feast on the fruits of their labor!

Rock Eagle Survival Skillz

Campers will spend the day exploring the Rock Eagle wilderness. Using a compass and map to traverse the trails, campers will hike and picnic at the Rock Eagle Mound. To cool off after lunch, we will head to the lake to adventure by canoe!
