Field Science Camp

Sandra Marr
Rising K – Rising 6th Graders
August 5 – 9 • 7:45 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Camp includes free choice of activities from 7:45-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m. each day at Kinder Quest or Cougar Quest, Collegiate’s After-school facilities.
Bring a nut-free lunch and filled water bottle from home each day. Snacks and drinks are provided.
A field scientist’s work is in the great outdoors and that is where our campers will learn all about science through hands-on science exploration. This camp offers the perfect balance between arts and crafts, physical play, technology, learning and more!
Rising K-rising 1st Graders will explore the Collegiate Children’s Garden where they will collect diverse samples of insects and plants and be introduced to zoology and ecology. That will get us ready for a trip to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens where we’ll be immersed into the world of plants. Campers will also go to the zoo, hike nature trails and visit Maymont Park. This week of science adventures promises to expand your child’s knowledge of nature, the environment and the various categories of science.
Rising 2nd-rising 6th Graders will visit the nature trails at the Robins Campus where they will hike the grounds and discover what lives in the woods and what lives in a local creek. On a field trip to Maymont Park, campers will observe and learn about a wide variety of animals and habitats. Guided tours of the Richmond Zoo and Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens are also planned.
Join Sandra Marr, Collegiate Upper School biology and ecology teacher, along with a group of Summer Quest counselors as they lead the campers through a variety of field trips, activities and, ultimately, the world of science discovery.
