Our first Spring Break Explorer Camp!

explorer.jpgOur first ever Spring Break Explorer Camp was a great success! In partnership with the cities of Robbinsdale, Crystal, New Hope, and Golden Valley, Three Rivers hosted an Explorer Camp at Lion’s Valley Place Park in Crystal. Three Rivers offered participants a great week that included animal habitats, bird migration, and camouflage. Learning about these topics included games and art projects. Campers created pictures of bird migration with watercolors and habitats for animals made out of clay. They tried out archery and disc golf and also met several live reptiles and amphibians. Days were filled with fun and learning, but reflecting the need for unstructured play, campers also directed their own fun and learning with exploring the mostly frozen pond, rolling down the huge sledding hill, and experimenting with what types of food the resident ant colony liked best.
