Senior Forester Academy
Description: The Senior Forester Academy strives to “nurture the love in nature” in kids 11-12 years old. The NAU Centennial Forest invites campers to engage in hands-on lessons about wildlife, trees, conservation, and forest research – all while making new friends! Activities include surveying for local birds, practicing primitive skills, and identifying native plants. The curriculum is geared towards learning while having fun in the forest. One highlight of the week is a discovery hike into the West Clear Creek Wilderness riparian area. During the visit we practice Leave No Trace principles, investigate local birds and cool off in the creek with our friends. Campers enjoy staying overnight on NAU’s research forest in large canvas tents with up to 6 of their fellow campers and one adult counselor. Staff are background checked, CPR/First Aid certified (adult to child ratio of 1:7) and we host a maximum of 28 campers each week. Join us this summer for Nature, Science and Fun on the NAU Forest!
