We host School's Out Camp almost every day that Lee County schools are not in session. Children can spend their days off exploring our 105-acre property and learning all about Southwest Florida's unique ecology.
February 20th: Predators & Prey - Who eats who out in the swamp? Cats eating alligators, snakes eating snakes, and deer eating bones, the food web is never as simple as it looks in a picture. Discover how animals survive, find their food, and avoid being eaten!
March 17th: Recycle! - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and learn all about where your garbage goes! Discover how plastic is made, what happens to aluminum cans, and what you can do to help conserve our natural resources and keep your used items out of landfills!
March 20th - 24th: Outdoor Survival - Start a fire, build a shelter, find food and water in the woods. It's time to get out on the trails and learn how to survive in the swamp during Southwest Florida's dry season!
April 7th: Exoplanets & Alien Life! - Learn about some of the 5,000 planets orbiting around other stars, and discover what life might be like on distant worlds as you explore space in our planetarium.
April 10th: Nature Storytelling - People from all over the world have stories about the plants, animals, and places around them. Learn some of those stories today, from trickster tortoises to the frogs who wanted a king!
May 29th: Butterflies! - Monarchs, Atalas, Swallowtails, Skippers, and Sulfurs! Butterflies can be found all over the world, and over 200 visit Florida throughout the year. Explore our butterfly house and learn all about these incredible insects!
