Ecology and Nature
Nestled in the woods, Camp White Eagle provides a perfect habitat for many animals and plants, allowing campers to observe and appreciate the behavior of the natural world that inhabits our 120-acre facility. Whether you’re walking along one of camp’s many trails, or just sitting down by the lake, beautiful natural sights, and sounds surround you. In our nature activity, our instructors teach participants about that beauty by observing it, listening to it, and experiencing it. Campers learn to identify trees and plants, do bird watching and animal tracking (such as deer, foxes, porcupines, skunks, rabbits, and chipmunks), and learn about water biology (go snorkeling to find fish, underwater plants, and turtles). Campers also learn about recycling, tree planting, animal care, and gardening. Activities such as scavenger hunts for objects in nature, sensory hikes, casting animal tracks with plaster, creating terrariums, and many more, allow campers to learn while having fun.
