  • My daughter just finished a week of nature camp and she had a great time. They learned about plants, animals, and different types of rocks. She really liked the different craft activities. We will be doing it again next year. If you want to attend make sure you sign up early, April, as all the camps do fill up.
  • Delightful stop while visiting Midland! The windows over the river and by the forest are fantastic. We watched fish and saw a turkey and her young feeding. Lots to do and learn.
