Campers at SPREE's February 20th Holiday Camp got to explore where animals go in the winter. We did a relay to collect food and added layers of clothing to represent layers of fat. Campers then made hibernation shelters (hibernacula). We had fun making bats and creating a bat cave inside the building. Campers also learned about diapause and went on an insect hunt around Johnson Habitat Park.
We closed the day with a performance about animals in winter. Campers made their own sock puppets, rehearsed lines and put on a great show! Thanks to our River Rangers from KIPP Denver Collegiate High School for their help teaching and having fun with everyone.
We still have some space at our upcoming spring break camp and final spring holiday camp. Come join us for fun activities along the South Platte River:
