Riverbend Day Camps Offer Structured Activities For Students
Kids love days off from school, but student holidays can create headaches for parents. Finding a safe yet entertaining environment for children can be difficult. This winter, Riverbend Park has two exciting day camps scheduled to engage children and explore the natural world.
On Monday, January 28, 2013, children ages 8 to 12 will gather for an Animal Vets Workshop. Kids will spend the day with the exhibit animals, learning to check their health, weight, and size. They will clean and refresh the animals’ tanks and enjoy fun activities and games. This hands-on workshop will open up the possibilities of working with animals as a career. Kids should bring a bag lunch, snack, and drink, and wear old clothes that can get dirty. This six-hour camp begins at 9 a.m. and the cost is $78 per child.
On Tuesday, January 29, children ages 8 to 12 will investigate our ever changing earth during Volcanoes, Earthquakes, and Geysers camp. They will be become part of the rock cycle while examining rock and mineral specimens. Making a volcano, watching an exploding geyser in action, and conducting earthquake experiments could be the first steps toward a career in geology. Kids should bring snack, drink, and lunch. This six-hour camp begins at 9 a.m. and the cost is $78 per child.
Riverbend Park is located at 8700 Potomac Hills Street in Great Falls, Va.
