    WAITLIST

    Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter is excited to offer two days of fun, outdoor camp during the Park City February Break.  Campers will adventure on snowshoes, learn about animals in the winter, try their hand at snow science, and more!

    Ski Break Camp is open to youth currently enrolled in 1st through 5th grades.  Camp begins each morning at 9 am and ends at 4 pm (drop off is allowed at 8:45 am.  No late pick up available).  Two snacks will be provided (one in the morning and one in the afternoon), but campers should bring their own lunch and reusable water bottle each day!

    Arctic Adventures: Ever wonder how animals survive the snow and ice of winter?  Gear up to head out and learn about animal adaptations, the bustling community under the snow, and other ways critters survive the cold in this fun outdoor-based camp.  Campers will try out snowshoeing on the Preserve and get up close and personal with some special animal guest visitors.

    Winter Wonderland:  The weather isn’t as frightful as you might think!  Bundle up to head out on a snowshoe exploration of the Preserve and discover the secrets of snow!  Learn about snow science, observe tracks, and more in this fun and wintery camp. Then head inside to warm up with hot chocolate and fun indoor activities!

    The cost of each camp is $60 per day. This fee helps to cover the cost of supplies for activities, any special guest visitors, our staff’s time planning and facilitating camp, snacks, facility expenses, and more.

    Tuition waivers available on case to case basis.  Please contact Katherine Veeder, Education Director, at katherine.veeder@usu.edu or (435)797-8942 for more information.
