Nature’s Small Wonders Camp Open House

...children climbing high on top of an ancient boulder to peer down with binoculars at the wildlife below them, or pulling up fresh carrots from the garden to feed a bunny a snack.

Imagine them crafting bird houses out of simple recycled materials or watching in wonder as a baby chick emerges from its fragile egg shell. This is play in the great outdoors - hands on animal and bug interactions, imaginary games, and amazing discoveries. Nature’s Small Wonders is a place for exploration, learning about life and nature's many beauties, building confidence, and escaping into one’s imagination.

What is Nature’s Small Wonders?

Nature’s Small Wonders is a privately owned sensory-based nature exploration and science camp that is held on 12 acres of private land. Owned and operated by Angela Hanscom, a pediatric occupational therapist and with the help of some very enthusiastic UNH therapy students, this partial day camp is for any child between the ages of 4 and 6 years this summer.
