HORICON — It is time for parents to sign-up their children for the Horicon Marsh Education Center summer camps.  There will be two summer camps offered during the 2013 summer and students attending are guaranteed to have a wonderful time “walking on the wild side” of nature.  

This will be the third year for summer camps at the Horicon Marsh Education Center and are aimed at students entering first and second grades and students entering third and fourth grades.

Dig into Nature is being offered to students entering first and second grades and will run from Tuesday, June 18 to Thursday, June 20, from 9 a.m. to noon. All in the class will have a great time as they dig through mud, algae, rocks, pellets and more to discover Horicon Marsh’s secrets below the ground. The fee for the nature camp is $50 per camper.

Keepers of the Earth is being offered to students entering third and fourth grade and will run from Tuesday, July 16 through Thursday, July 18, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  

Campers will explore how Native Americans used nature to help them survive.  They will play games that taught vital hunting skills, make projects from natural materials and learn about wild edibles. They will discover ways that they can protect and conserve nature every day and how they can become a keeper of the earth. Fee for the camp is $75 per camper.

Camps will be held at the Horicon Marsh International Education Center, N7725 Highway 28. Pre-registration is required for camp and a registration form can be found at www.horiconmarsh.org. For questions one can call Liz Herzmann, wildlife conservation educator for the DNR and head of wildlife management for the Horicon Marsh at 920-387-7893, or email Elizabeth.Herzmann@Wisconsin.gov
