The youth camps and preschool camps each run for one week in July. During the various camps, students can learn about the local ecosystem and native wildlife, or create their own rocket and launch it into the sky. The preschool camps immerse young children in nature, teaching them about many elements of the natural world, such as small woodland creatures, reptiles, insects, wildflowers, and fossils.
West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science
West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science promotes creativity, responsibility, and academic achievement through the comprehensive study of science. Lessons are tailored for students in preschool through 12th grade, grounded in the hard sciences, and supported by a hands-on learning environment. The 62-acre campus maintains farmland, nature trails, wetlands, and forests as outdoor classrooms where students can explore during weekly environmental-science labs. Differentiated instruction allows students to grow in a diverse setting; one lesson asks that they build arbors from spare branches, and the next dictates that they write reports on handmade paper from the previous week's lab. All the while, the school's character-education programs build self-awareness and self-esteem. In addition to regular lessons, the academy offers science fairs to showcase kids' skills and summer camps to keep the fires of learning ablaze—like the traditional end-of-year burning of the times-table tests—in the off season.
