“My son LOVED your Bio Adventure Camp last year. This camp is amazing! Thank you for the wonderful learning opportunities you provide for our children.” – Parent
Explore the science of the outdoors in our action-packed summer day camp!
Survey the fish and invertebrates of the river while canoeing down the Chippewa. Investigate the ecology of local lakes through boating and shoreline activities. Collect and identify pond bugs and frogs. Then join our geo-caching forest treasure hunt, to learn more about GPS while searching for forest animals and plants.
If you want to dig into our local waters and woods to discover the biology in your own backyard, then you belong in Bio Adventure Camp this summer! All activities and field trips are led by UW-Eau Claire faculty with assistance from undergraduate Biology students. Our low student to adult ratio allows for plenty of interaction and individual attention. Don't miss this unique experience!
