Evening Classes

  • Alpha Wolf - While a member of a wolf pack, use your senses to look for and find the lead (Alpha) wolf of the pack. This is an evening simulation that is very active.
  • Astronomy - View the stars and other celestial bodies. Identify the constellations and hear some of the stories that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Native Americans, and other cultures associated with them.
  • Campfire - Sing, listen to stories, and participate in skits: these are just a few examples of what your students may have in store for them at an evening campfire.
  • Night Hikes - Explore the natural world at night. Students use senses to learn more about this mysterious environment along with the habits and adaptations of nocturnal animals.
