S.L.O.T.H. Day Camp - Science Learning On The Hill 

Barn Hill Preserve's science camp is the perfect place for aspiring zookeepers to learn more about the wild world around them. Campers will work hands on with our animals and staff to build lasting impressions that will inspire them to chase their goals. We hope to give campers an experience that they will carry with them into their future. Camp curriculum will include an interactive journey through five unique classes of organisms. Each day of camp will include a field sample hike, enrichment project, class, lab, and team building exercise. Campers will learn to use a variety of field/lab equipment including microscopes, field guides, and training clickers. They will also learn important techniques such as sample collection, egg incubation, animal identification, diet preparation, basic animal training, and captive enrichment techniques.
