Life at the Pond

Our pond is a half-acre of frogs, fish, turtles and tadpoles.  Under the supervision of our dedicated Pond staff, the campers will learn about pond ecosystems and then explore all around the pond. Campers can search for wildlife as they join the staff on an adventure around the pond. Some campers have been known to wade into the pond to catch frogs and tadpoles. Don’t forget our resident celebrity snapping turtle Michelangelo. This turtle is the king (or maybe queen) of the pond and is always interested in seeing who stopped by the pond.

While on an adventure around the pond, campers can enjoy a small creek as well. This creek is next to the pond and in the woods. It offers a chance to see a different environment while trekking around the pond.  All of this fun is really a learning experience. Our pond staff catch live fish, tadpoles and frogs to put in our aquariums so the campers can see these freshwater creatures up close.  Every once in a while a snake makes it way into an aquarium too!!
