Bailey's Budding Naturalists
This summer, join the Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum for an exciting outdoor exploration. This day camp, Bailey's Budding Naturalists is designed for children ages 5-11. The children will experience the many wonders of nature through hands-on projects and activities. Some of the subjects the children will study are the life cycle of seeds, origins of food, plant growth, nature –inspired art, and Liberty Hyde Bailey, Jr.
Due to the Covid 19 regulations and recommendations, camp will be different this year! The BBN will be following CDC guidelines. For campers ages 5-9 we will offer a sign up orientation for student and parents on the Monday of camp week. Students will learn how to use their take home kit of nature learning fun. It will have materials included to make nature related crafts for summer fun. It is important to register in person or call the museum to select a time for orientation.
Students ages 10-11 will have a traditional week on location. Students must wear a mask- we have them- and their temperature will be taken every morning when they sign in. It is strongly urged each student bring their own water bottle. Social distancing will be practiced so camp enrollment is limited.

Children ages 8-9: Orientation with parent or guardian at the museum on Monday, July 13. Schedule an appointment by calling 269-637-3251. Take- home summer nature project kits will be sent home.
