Highlands Center to offer spring break camp in mid-March
Children ages 6 through 12 can register now to attend the Highlands Center for Natural History's "Friends Understanding Nature," or F.U.N., spring break camp program.
The program is scheduled for March 15 to 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, at the center on the Prescott National Forest, 1375 S. Walker Road.
Every spring and fall, school-aged children get to spend a week outdoors at the center to make their own discoveries in nature.
This year's camp schedule includes hands-on, outdoor nature discoveries in which children develop their awareness of the natural world through exploration, art, journaling, animal role-play, nature crafts, stories and songs as they explore the unique forest here in the Central Arizona Highlands.
The Highlands Center is a proponent of "More Kids in the Woods" and "Leave No Child Inside," two national movements that encourage programming that brings children outside to experience and learn about nature.
Pre-registration and an enrollment fee for the spring break program are required. For more information and/or to register, call the Highlands Center at 776-9550 or visit its website at www.highlandscenter.org.
