Camp Elachee 2021: Pre-K Camp Weekly Themes 

June 7-11: Forest Forensics
Campers will explore the mysteries of the forest, including scat, animal tracks, camouflage and the various adaptations that allow animals to thrive in their various habitats. Join us as we gather clues to uncover the mysteries in our own backyards!

June 21-25: Green and Growing
Campers will branch out and explore the world of plants and trees. Georgia is a unique state for its diversity of plant life. Join us to explore the concepts of gardening for food, beekeeping, pollinator gardens, and tree identification!

July 5-9: Aquatic Adventures
Hold your breath and go down deep! This week we will be exploring all things aquatic- fish, macroinvertebrates that inhabit our streams, water quality and watersheds. Campers will spend lots of time in Walnut Creek and will enjoy water-filled fun!

July 19-23: Curious Crawlers
No backbone required! Campers will explore the world of insects, arachnids, cephalopods, reptiles and amphibians. With a visit to meet our resident reptiles and amphibians, campers will learn what it means to be an arachnid, why slugs are slimy and how snakes ‘see’ with their tongues!
