Nature Ranger Day Camp: Twin Falls
April 10 – April 12
Twelve youth ages 9 – 12 will become Nature Rangers by attending Nature Ranger Day Camp April 10-12, 2023 at Twin Falls State Park. It can only be described as a blend of wildlife identification, survival skills and nature crafting and appreciation.
Preregistration is required and there is a program fee of $99 to cover lunches, supplies provided, and materials used for the three days of outdoor activities and discovery. Camp hours are 10:00AM – 5:00PM with extra two activities, one in early morning Wednesday and one mid-evening on Monday.
Day one includes a meet and greet, tracking and track identification, bats and moths their importance and understanding of echolocation, and a survival skill set, with the option of a black light hike in the evening.
Day two is a primitive bush craft day that includes sling shots and sportsmanship, primitive shelter building, and primitive fire building using different methods of fire starting.
Day three has a very early morning option called ‘speak the language’ and about understanding the wild turkey habits, sounds and their habitats. A turkey call craft, chair construction using only cord and sticks, and completion certificate and pin concludes the day camp.
Lunch is provided each day. Activities are primarily outside. Youth will need to dress for the weather. For detailed information, registration, and parent agreement, please email Tammy.D.Cooper@wv.gov. This day-camp will fill quickly and is limited to 12 youth.
