Camp Wingra After School
Mondays Jan. 28th- Feb. 25th
Building on the success of our first ever session this fall, Camp Wingra After School is excited to offer a Winter Session on Mondays from January 28th to February 25th!
There's plenty to do outdoors in the winter time! This five week session will include winter camping and outdoor survival skills, ice fishing, snowshoeing, ecology and limnology, ice skating, snow sculptures, and more!
What happens to all of the fish, turtles, and other animals in the winter time? Can you really stay warm enough to camp outside in the snow? How does our local watershed look different in the "off season"? This session is all about exploration, and giving winter the same level of attention and wonder that we have given to the summer season for years.
