Do you know a child who loves the outdoors? Get them outside this summer at STEAM Outside Camp at Tree Pittsburgh!
STEAM Outside Camp will engage your 4th, 5th, or 6th grader in the urban forest, fields, and rivers through a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) lens. Camp takes full advantage of Tree Pittsburgh’s new 5-acre riverfront campus with interactive activities focused on the natural environment, location-based biodiversity including riparian forests and river habitats, as well as our Heritage Nursery.
Each day of STEAM Outside Camp will have a different theme, allowing campers to learn about insects, tree identification, reforestation, tree biology, and more. This week-long day camp will take participants into the Tree Pittsburgh Heritage Nursery to uncover the fascinating life of trees from seed up through their first years of growth. Through journaling, art, hands-on lessons, and exciting projects, campers will explore the urban forest while flexing their STEAM muscles in an outdoor setting. Participants will also have the chance to meet Tree Pittsburgh’s staff arborists and discover how they can make a difference in the urban forest through first-hand experiences and field techniques.
Camp is designed for students entering 4th, 5th, or 6th grade in Fall 2021. Campers should bring their own lunch. Campers may be dropped off at 8:30 a.m. and must be picked up by 3:30 p.m.
