Nature Day at Base Camp

Don't Miss the Animals!

Friday, March 31st, 2017

9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


Ages 6-9: Minnesota Wildlife (wild and domestic animals you might find in our state with some live animals to meet)

Ages 10 and up: Mammals (hands-on comparison of skulls and diet for herbivores, omnivores and carnivores)

Plus at the end of each program a combined Live Animal Presentation, with Dodge Nature Center


This registration is for the two spring 2017 Homeschool sessions at Base Camp. If you cannot attend these dates feel free to make a reservation for your specific homeschool group or co-op. Our minimum group size for most activities is just ten.

Each field trip will begin at 9:00 AM and conclude at 2:00 PM. Check-in begins at 8:30 AM and pre-registration is required. Parent/adult registrants are not required to remain onsite, but are welcome to observe the activities throughout the day. For adults dropping youth off, we request that you accompany your children into the building for check-in (please do not let them walk up on their own). All youth participating in the program must have a waiver form signed by their parent or guardian (separate forms for each youth). Participants should wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing – dressing also for the weather if your program indicates outdoor activities. In addition, it is recommended to bring a water bottle and bag lunch.
