TRENTON, N.J.
- The Mercer County Park Commission’s Baldpate Nature Camp II for children entering grades 5 through 7 still has openings for the July 16 - 20 session.

The camp, to be held at Baldpate Mountain in Hopewell Township, is designed to enhance children’s natural affinity for the great outdoors. Nature Camp II campers will spend mornings on exploratory hikes, where they will set foot on a new trail each day, equipped with their curiosity and encouraged to explore their environment. Nature experiments and studies will round out camp day afternoons.

Campers will keep a nature journal to record their thoughts, explorations and discoveries. All campers will create a Baldpate Nature Guide T-shirt to take home.

The Baldpate Nature Camp II program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 16-20. Fee is $190.

Nature Camp registration forms can be found on the Park Commission website: http://nj.gov/counties/mercer/commissions/park/natureprog.html.
