We are excited to have TimberNook returning to Storrs Pond for the Summer of 2021! TimberNook day camps take nature programming to the next level! Imagine children building a wooden bridge of their own design deep in the woods, or pulling up fresh carrots from the garden to feed an alpaca a snack. Imagine them crafting flying contraptions out of simple recycled materials before launching them off an ancient boulder or walking in a shallow and slow-moving river, scanning the area for crayfish and turtles.
