Children's Nature Academy
Accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs, this academy provides children of UW-Eau Claire students, faculty and staff with a high-quality program that is both affordable and convenient. This nature-based early childhood program promotes physical, social, emotional and intellectual development in a safe and nurturing environment. The Children's Nature Academy, located at The Priory, is the ideal setting for exploration and discovery. Our school-aged children embrace our surroundings as they create their own community of friendships and experiences. Blend the best of summer nature camps with the "just plain fun" of having a break in the beautiful surroundings of the 112-acre property. During the morning hours, the nature focus will take children on adventures in learning through creativity and project learning surrounding new topics each week. There will be different programs every week such as hiking, learning about birds, insects, flowers, invasive species, rain, frogs, geology, and trees & termites.
