  • An event every day at 8:15am, starting August 1, 2022 and repeating until August 4, 2022

Registration for this camp is now closed.

Summer is the perfect time to make the outdoors your science lab! Discover the beauty of science and nature while exploring Dodge’s Shepard Farm in Cottage Grove. Adventures, experiments and games will give you grounding in geology, ecology, chemistry, and more. Think like a scientist as you build a crackling campfire, investigate food webs, and crack open geodes to find hidden treasures within.
