Scenes from Summer Camp!

Summer camps returned to Gilsland Farm this summer in a big way, as we ran more weekly sessions, brought back preschool camps, and moved programming almost exclusively outdoors! And after 8 weeks of camp, 78 mystery animals, 128 nature journals, and too many turkey sightings to count, we wanted to share some scenes from camp:

Our campers explored every ecosystem at Gilsland Farm, engaging in hands-on discovery and honing their observation skills.

They learned from community experts and collaborated in play and problem solving.

Thank you to the teens who volunteered their time as Environmental Education Assistants, our wonderful team of summer educators, and to all the families who participated. We look forward to seeing you next summer!
