The Highlands Center for Natural History's 80-acre campus becomes an outdoor classroom for children ages 7-11 with innovative science-supported outdoor learning activities.

The Spring F.U.N. (Friends Understanding Nature) Camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 9 through 13.

"This is the only week-long camp offered in Prescott where children spend the whole day immersed in exploratory and fun outdoor science education. It's a wonderful way for kids to make new friends and become inspired by the intricate natural world they live in," said Mara Kack, HCNH education director.

Spring Camp students will investigate the changing season through weather, water and wildlife, observing the world around them with interactive activities and individual secret spots every day. Lunch takes place along Lynx Creek where kids are encouraged to spend the afternoon with their peers interacting in free-play, fort building, and water explorations. The camp ends with individual writing and art, as nature becomes the teacher and the forest and creek the classroom.

Preregistration is required as the camp fills quickly. Cost is $150 for members, $205 for nonmembers and scholarships are offered. Registration is now available online at, or call 928-776-9550.
