For children ages 5 to 12+

Camp Musky is an educational and fun day camp for kids ages 5 to 12-plus. We offer an outdoor learning experience, and hands-on, river-based programs. Our primary mission is education and awareness. We believe that a community that is fully aware of the importance and vulnerability of its natural resources is a community that will actively support efforts to ensure environmental quality.

Explorers

Campers will explore nature through storytelling, cooperative play, and creative art and crafting projects designed to deepen their connection with nature.  Each morning, we will depart on an exciting journey exploring the river and its surroundings while collecting and recording treasures found along the way.  We will use their collections along with other artistic mediums, paints, beads and clay to create and express the different aspects of life on the river.  While encountering all of the tings that can be seen, and even some things that cannot, campers will develop a nature journal and discover ways of creating a record of what their senses experience.

Trailblazers     2019 SESSION FULL

Campers will explore the connection between humans and nature.  Understanding the plants and animals in our local ecosystem, and safe ways to interact with them, will create opportunities for children to explore nature in a creative, uninhibited way.  They will develop an appreciation for the basic components necessary for sustainability including use of water, shelter and food.  Learning how each habitat explored provides these necessities for the creatures it supports.

STEM Camp     2019 SESSION FULL

Science, Technology, Engineering, and yes even some Math! STEM Camp will use hands-on learning to foster creativity, problem-solving, life skills, resourcefulness, patience and curiosity.  Using core STEM principles, we will work together to solve real world problems, including building sensors to help us monitor the mighty Musky's health.  We will, of course, make time to explore the river and play some games!

Stream Team     2019 SESSION FULL

Stream Team will explore the connections between the Earth's ecosystems, and the microorganisms within those ecosystems.  They will be exposed to practices of sustainability and environmental ethics as well as practices in classification of insects, birds, flowers and trees.  Explorations of the river and our path to developing deep, lasting connections with our bio-region will be documented in a nature journal.

River Rangers     2019 SESSION FULL

Older campers will learn that for humans to live sustainably we need to use the Earth's resources at a rate at which they can be replenished.  River Rangers will develop an appreciation for the basic components necessary for sustainability, including use of water, shelter and food.  River Rangers will learn how each habitat explored provides the necessities for the creatures it supports.  Each day, there will be an exploration of the Musconetcong River and an in-depth investigation of stream and field life in the Musconetcong Watershed.
