Camp Ducktails is offered once a week on Thursday for preschool children ages 4 – 5 years. Camp is based out of the Rec Hall in Spencer Conservation Area and runs from 9:00AM to 11:30AM. Each session a new nature topic is introduced. Campers will go on nature walks, listen to a story, complete a craft, and enjoy a snack. A free camp T-shirt is included with the first registered session.
