The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science has announced its summer camps for youth.

Young people of all ages will have the opportunity to get outdoors and enjoy various educational nature-related activities.

“Get ready for an unforgettable journey filled with discovery, learning, and, most importantly, FUN! Our camps provide a unique opportunity for children to investigate the outdoors, learn from expert educators, and create memories that will last a lifetime,” Museum Education Coordinator Katie Tupy said.

The museum will be hosting the following camps.

Spotter’s Discovery Camps

Young campers engage in outdoor nature activities including hiking, aquatic adventures, and nature-inspired games and crafts. They will learn wildlife identification, explore wetlands, and encounter native wildlife while making new friends. This camp offers several age-appropriate sessions for campers entering PreK-3 through entering grade 6, including an Art Camp and a Splash Camp.

Campers entering grades 4-8 will engage in hands-on activities designed to increase outdoor skills and foster a love of nature. Activities will include fishing, fire building, hands-on lessons in forestry, herpetology, water ecology, and entomology, and an optional overnight camp on the last day.

Jr. Naturalist Camp

Campers entering grades 7-8 will explore the great outdoors with state biologists and educators while learning about ecology and conservation. Jr. Naturalists will have the ultimate camp experience – hiking, collecting, exploring, swimming, and canoeing, while making new friends. This camp includes an overnight field trip at Roosevelt State Park.

Field Camp

Campers entering grades 9-12 will spend the week at Percy Quin State Park in McComb while exploring the pine hills forests of South Mississippi. Guided by research scientists, they will study Mississippi’s native and endangered species such as black bears, bats, and gopher tortoises, and discover fossils and other natural treasures.

Museum officials say spaces are limited and fill up quickly, so parents are encouraged to register their children as early as possible. Dates for the camps and registration information can be found here.
