Wild Walkers: A Winter Survival Skills Camp for Ages 10 to 14
The Nature Museum, 186 Townshend Road, Grafton, VT

Get outside while you're on school break this year with Wild Walkers, a daylong outdoor adventure suited for youth ages 10 to 14. Wild Walkers is a partnership between The Nature Museum and Vermont Wilderness School. Youth will learn how to coal-burn - a method used for making spoons, bowls, and even canoes, which dates back to the First People. Experienced environmental educators will teach students to safely build and tend winter fires, how to manage coal-burning safely, and how to use and care for a knife. $35 per child if registered by February 1, or $40 after February 1st. Register at www.nature-museum.org or call 802-843-2111.

Brave Bears: An Outdoor Wilderness Camp for Ages 6 to 9
The Nature Museum, 186 Townshend Road, Grafton, VT

Explore your wild side this winter break with Brave Bears! Make new friends while learning about the animals who live in Vermont - including their winter adaptations and how humans track them - before embarking on a snowshoeing adventure through forests and fields, collecting clues left in the snow by wild animals. We'll play games, move our bodies, and investigate the world around us with a scavenger hunt. $25 per child if registered by February 1, or $30 per child after February 1st. Register at www.nature-museum.org or call 802-843-2111.
