Summer Virtual Camps 2020

Although EON can't bring our animal ambassadors to you this summer, we can still share them with you through our new online programs.

Checkout the Summer Camp line up below and register through the accompanying Eventbrite link to secure your child's place today.

A zoom link will be emailed to you for class participation.  Also, an email with the supplies and pdf of the class activities, craft templates will be emailed.  The pdf does not need to be printed but may be used as a guide for crafts.  Basic supplies include: crayons/markers/colored pencils, glue sticks/glue, paper, construction paper, scissors.  We are trying for common household items or gathering natural items from outside. There can be several options for materials just depending on what is already handy or easily found.

Creature Colors will focus upon the different colors and patterns of animals.  Participants will either have colors introduced or reinforced through mixed media: pictures and toy models.  Key science concepts will be introduced through games and activities, such as matching and patterns.  Live animal ambassadors will help make the colors and patterns come alive.  Crafts will be made to reinforce the day.

This camp session will focus upon the five senses in us and within animals, either as a sensory tool or how that animal uses that sense in its world. Each sense will be
focused upon in an exploratory manner for participants. Key science concepts will be introduced through games and activities, such as matching, not only visually but also through auditory and smell. Live animal ambassadors will help complement the topic. Crafts will be made to reinforce the day’s topic.
