Registration has closed for Spring Break Camp. Check out our Summer Science Camp!

Seasonal Survivors: April 1-5, 2019

Both at Idlewild Park, Reno

Important Facts

Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation will offer the Student Stewards camp during Spring Break! This camp is an extension of our Student Stewards Program, in which we turn local parks into learning laboratories where students are able to connect with the natural world and appreciate science.

 

The Student Stewards Spring Break Camp is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics), standards-based option for school vacation. 

The Student Stewards Spring Break Camp is open to 8-13 year olds in the Reno/Sparks area.

Weekly Themes

Week 1: Ecosystem Engineers 3/25/19 - 3/29/19:

This week, we will learn how organisms play important roles in their habitats! Learn about beavers and their dams, elephants ripping up trees, keystone species, and more!

Week 2: Seasonal Survivors 4/1/19 - 4/5/19:

Come learn about all the ways plants and animals survive in extreme temperatures- migration, hibernation, caching, sweating and more! 

Both weeks will include educational games, crafts and activities!

Prices: 

Regular Registration: $200 per week

Early Bird Registration (until February 25, 2019): $150 per week

Why?

According to Peter Scales and the American Camp Association, "Camp is one of the few institutions where young people can experience and satisfy their need for physical activity, creative expression and true participation in a community environment. Most schools don't satisfy all these needs."
 

There is a projected 14% increase in STEM-related jobs, but only 16% of high school students are proficient in STEM subjects. With our STEAM, standards-based curriculum at the Student Stewards Spring Break Camp, students will be better prepared for high school and beyond!

Additional Forms

If your child will need to take prescribed medication during camp, please download and fill out the Medical Administration Form here.
