NEWPORT BEACH...The Environmental Nature Center (ENC) will offer Spring Break Nature Camp for students in preschool through 6th grade from April 16-19, 2018. Participants can choose between full day camp, from 9am to 3pm or half-day camp, from 9am to 1pm. For more information visit

"Spring Break Nature Camp is a great way for children to stay active and learning during break," said ENC Education Coordinator Corina Silva. "Being outdoors in enriching environments increases a child's independence and autonomy as they explore nature."

Each day, campers will be divided into small groups by age. Each group will explore different themes throughout the day and participate in exciting, fun, age appropriate activities. These engaging activities will allow campers to conduct experiments, get creative, learn about wildlife and explore nature.

Activities will be lead by the ENC's Camp Teachers who are exceptionally qualified in elementary science education and represent a wide range of expertise in the Orange County educational community.

"Being outside helps children grow, be more imaginative, and enjoy healthy, active lifestyles," said ENC Executive Director Bo Glover. "Our Spring Break camp helps kids do just that with fun, educational activities."
