ENC Summer Nature Camp

Dylan recently finished a 2 week summer camp at the Environmental Nature Center (ENC) and he had a blast! This was his second year attending the ENC's Summer Nature Camp and I know he will do it again next year. The ENC offers four different 2-week sessions and if Dylan had his way he would be attending all of them. Lori Whalen is the Director of Education and she is the best!

The camp is from 9 am - 1 pm and the ENC also offers an after camp program that goes until 3 pm. Crafts, nature, and all things environmental ... basically, all things Dylan!

This year he went to Session 2: Under the Sea and learned all about marine mammals, sharks, fish, and everything that lives in and around the sea.

Dylan even got to go on a  field trip to the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.

One of his favorite activities was making his very own ocean in a jar

And of course buying rocks from the ENC store.

My favorite thing he did was carve is own Orca with a chisel after learning about the Legend of the Orca.

If you live in the Newport Beach area, I highly recommend going to the ENC. The Summer Nature Camps are amazing and they offer all kinds of family events throughout the year. ENC also offers School Programs, Scouting Programs, Birthday Parties, and Monthly Events.

Be sure to check out the ENC website for a listing of this months activities ... There really is something for everyone!

ENC is located at 1601 16th Street, Newport Beach, CA 92663
