School is out and summer fun has begun! The Forest Heritage Center Museum will be hosting Camp Discover: Art of the Forest, a children’s day camp, July 9-11 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM for children ages 9-11. Camp Discover provides children with a fun-filled, education experience designed to familiarize the children with the many facets of forestry that is sure to be the highlight of their summer.

The theme for this year’s camp will be “Tree Detectives”. Campers will use the clues offered by trees to learn about the world around them with a discovery walk on the Tree Trail, educational activities, and tree-themed arts and crafts. “Our goal for camp this year is to spark the desire to learn more, inspire creativity, and open the eyes of children to the amazing world around them,” says Calista Stephens, the camp’s director.

The location of the Forest Heritage Center in beautiful Beaver’s Bend State Park is the perfect setting to learn about the forest, with over 50 species of trees within a 1 mile radius. During the three days, campers will learn about some of the qualities that give trees personality and make each species unique. They’ll learn that trees depend on water, wildlife, and good soil and about what trees give back to make the environment healthier.

  Camp Registration:  $20 and includes all art supplies/materials, daily snacks, lunch and a Camp Discover t-shirt; camp is limited to only 25 students.  Scholarships are available to those who qualify.  Applications can be picked up at the Broken Bow Chamber of Commerce, the Forest Heritage Center or printed off from the link below.
