Educational Camps for Children

Bugs on the trailBurritt camps for children offer unique day-camp programs for children during school breaks.

Each spring and summer we offer camps for students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade (K-5). Each camp centers upon hands-on learning activities specially designed to explore environmental, historical, scientific and cultural experiences while providing hours of fun. Campers will be divided into age-appropriate groups for each camp, and activities will be designed for each developmental level. Camp hours are from 9:00-2:00, and we offer an extended day option that allows you to drop off your child as early as 7:45 and pick him/her up as late as 5:30. There is an additional $12 charge per day for extended day. Reservations must be made for camp and extended day. There are no refunds for cancellations made within one week of the camp. Need-based scholarships are available by contacting Alice Kirsch at or 256-512-0148 for assistance.

 

Burritt Nature Rangers Fall Camp 2014

 Survivor Burritt!

Nature Rangers Fall Camps 2014

Make fall break an exciting adventure when you join Burritt for Nature Rangers Camp: Survivor Burritt. During the week of October 6th – 10th, kindergarten through 5th grade students will have a blast at our fall day camp. This year's camp is inspired by the children's book, The Sign of the Beaver. This Newberry Honor book, based on a true story, shares the struggle of a young boy left alone to take care of his family's new frontier cabin while his father journeys to return with the rest of the family. Our hero learns about self-reliance and friendship as he befriends an Indian boy who helps him survive by sharing knowledge about nature, tracking, marking trails, making tools and more.

Each day campers will be supervised and led by our trained, CPR-certified staff. With Burritt's famous combination of genuine fun, quality instruction, and active play, this is sure to be a fall break to remember!

Camp days run from 9:00 to 2:00. Students should bring their own sack lunch, but Burritt will provide a snack each day. You may also choose to register for our extended day option ($12/day) with drop-off available as early as 7:45 a.m. and pick-up as late as 5:30 p.m.

To better fit busy families' schedules, we offer three attendance options. Campers may join us for all five days (6th – 10th) at a cost of $155 for Burritt members and $165 for non-members.¬ Can't make it for the whole week? Come to camp on Monday the 6th, Tuesday the 7th, and Wednesday the 8th ($93 members, $99 non-members). The other option includes the second half of the week: Thursday the 9th and Friday the 10th ($62 members, $66 non-members). Registrations and payment must be received by Tuesday, September 30th. Contact Alice Kirsch at or 256-512-0148 for assistance.

cornshuck dolls2Mon., Tues., Wed. - We will imagine what life was like for the early settlers and Native Americans they encountered. Visits to the historic park and wooded hiking trails will allow us to step back in time and experience the excitement and the challenges of life on the frontier. Campers will learn to identify animal tracks and mark a trail, make corn shuck toys, cook over the open hearth, play favorite active games and learn historic and survival skills.

Thurs., Fri. - Join us to learn nature skills including orienteering, hiking on our trail, and learning to geocache. Campers will also enjoy letterboxing, the 1800s precursor of geocaching, by finding and solving clues and puzzle. Each camper will also make their own identifying-symbol stamp for letterboxing. These two days promise lots of outdoor activities and fun!
