Girls and boys who have completed the 4th – 6th grade of primary school. The camp was developed for young biologists and nature lovers, who like to observe, analyse and explore the rules governing natural phenomena.
During the camp we will explore the natural values of one of the most unique places in Poland – Puszcza Augustowska. The participants will examine local flora and fauna, habits of wind animals and the speech of wolves. They will get to know the work of foresters and will construct hatching booths and feeding stations for forest animals. In the period of one week, apart from developing their passion, the participants of the Nature Explorers camp, will take advantage of numerous attractions of Camp Serwy. Combining both elements they will take canoes to observe water birds or will cycle to a marsh in a forest. They will simply spend their time actively staying close to NATURE!
Thematic activities – (2 x 1.5 h/day) take place in beautiful surroundings of Puszcza Augustowska and involve observations, trace recognition or learning about the habits of wild animals (deer, roe), preparing a herbarium and bird watching. What is more, the participants will also find out how to get by in a forest (e.g. starting a fire, using a map). They will also learn to construct hatching booths for birds and feeding racks for game, and will carry out studies with the use of stereoscopes in a lab. Trips for nature-related works hops to Wigierski or Biebrzański National Parks are planned.
Supplementary activities (2 x 1.5 h/day) – sit-on-top, sport and tourist canoes, rowing, canoe, a bike trip, a climbing wall, a rope park, an archery course, recreational games.
