The West Atlanta Watershed Alliance (WAWA) is pleased to partner with The Amphibian Foundation again to offer this unique camp experience for youth ages 6-10. Critter Camp is a hands-on science camp which exposes youth to the exciting world of amphibians and reptiles. Over one hundred live animals from around the world will be available for this camp. This includes (most of) the major amphibian groups: frogs, toads, salamanders and newts as well as the reptile groups: turtles, tortoises, lizards and snakes. Campers will learn 'fun facts' about each group: their life cycles, where and how they live, how they reproduce, and their defense strategies. Campers will learn things like what makes a frog a toad, and what makes a turtle a tortoise. Campers will also learn how to identify frog species by their call and tadpole. We'll also utilize our entire 26-acre nature preserve for guided exploration, skills practice, and play.
Critter Camp would typically cost $275, but through support from ARC, PARC, USFS, and of course the Amphibian Foundation, we are able to offer a reduced camp tuition of $150 for the entire week! In addition to this reduced cost, we are offering scholarships to further reduce the financial burden for local youth to participate.
