2023 Ford Nature Center Nature-ology Summer Camp

The focus of this camp will be on outside experiences in our beautiful Mill Creek MetroParks. It is our belief that our children spend plenty of time in front of screens, and we want to expose them to all the beauty of the real, natural world–and there’s no better place than Mill Creek MetroParks for nature!

Each day, your child will have some lessons on the natural world, hiking all around the park, craftivities, healthy snacks, and even some field trips on the Cohasset Express Trolley!

Tuesday’s theme will be Rock-ology, and our focus will be on the geology of the park. Our special guest teacher joining us for Rock-ology will be YSU Geology Professor Diana Alexander.

Wednesday’s theme will be Bird-ology, and we will focus on all the winged creatures of the park.

Thursday’s theme will be Tree-ology, and we will focus on the trees that make the park such a beautiful forest.

Friday’s theme will be Farm-ology, and we will spend the entire day at the MetroParks Farm! Children will have a tractor ride, a hike, and a farm animal encounter!
