Summer Explorers Biology Camp 2024

2024 Summer Explorers Biology Camp Brochure

Camp Information:

This day camp is a summer adventure! An infinite number of discoveries await your child at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center. They will explore the biology of prairies and wetlands, and have fun at the same time. They will make exciting new discoveries outdoors each day, meet other people who love to be outside and learn about wildlife, and enjoy three days of fun. Perhaps they have experienced the prairie during the school year in the fall, winter, and spring seasons. The summer prairie is a whole different delight! More flowers are blooming, more insects are jumping, frogs are hopping, and birds are nesting. So much to explore, discover, and wonder about!

Who can attend?

Campers entering 5th or 6th grade in Fall 2024 who are curious and enjoy learning about nature and being in nature.

Where is the camp?

The Summer Explorers Biology Camp is held at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center (PWLC) in Fergus Falls, MN. The PWLC includes a visitor center plus 4 miles of trails in 330 acres of prairie with 28 wetlands.


Fergus Falls School District teacher Mona Davis and retired U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service environmental educator Molly Stoddard.

This camp is not just a learning opportunity for campers! Fifteen visiting educators attend the camp alongside campers and learn techniques for teaching in the outdoors. Each camper is part of a small team led by one of these teachers.
