About This Activity

While reptiles and amphibians may often go unnoticed, this week campers will learn how to seek out and appreciate our crawling, hopping and slithering friends. Campers will become amateur herpetologists as they learn which are hatched from eggs, what purpose bright colors serve, how our very own Pacific newt protects itself with its toxic skin, and how other slithering friends. Campers will have the chance to experiment with reptilian movement as they practice mobility, with or without legs. Slithering reptiles cause many to have strong emotions, but with the help of the Nature Day Camp mascot Pockets (our exceedingly popular Corn Snake), campers will get a chance to challenge and unpack negative terms and feelings that may arise and some may be surprised to discover her smooth, silky skin. Wildlife will be treated with care and respect as campers will come together to deconstruct ideas of discomfort, disgust or fear, so they can help feel more confident exploring the outdoors and the wonders around them!
