  2. Fantastic Forests Summer Camp

    July 26, 2021, 9:00 AM - July 30, 2021, 3:00 PM @ Flag Ponds Nature Park

    For children entering grades 2-3 in fall 2021. In this week-long forest adventure, campers will spend every day in the forest - exploring every nook and cranny. They will hike the trails from the sandy pines near the beach to the tall beeches and maples in the upland forest and everywhere in between. We will have fun wading into wet forests, rolling logs to see what animals live under the dead trees, and playing games to help us learn why forest communities are important.

  3. Imagine If....Camp!

    July 26, 2021, 9:00 AM - July 30, 2021, 12:00 PM @ Jefferson Patterson Park & Museum (JPPM)

    Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be someone or even something else? Imagine if you could try out being someone new each day? Who would you be? Maybe you would be a sailor fighting in the War of 1812, a farmer raising animals and tending crops, or even a pirate exploring the Patuxent River? If you use your imagination, you can even become an animal- like a bald eagle flying high in the sky or a tiny minnow swimming in a stream. Open up your mind and bring your imagination to life! It all begins with the words, “Imagine if….” at JPPM.
