Learn about God, nature, and the nature of God.

What is God like? What is our local environment like? What do those things have to do with each other? Those are the questions we'll seek to answer in this day camp for homeschool students.

Using Romans 1:20 as our foundation, we'll spend the week exploring nature through a variety of hikes and hands-on activities. As we encounter more and more of creation, we'll discover more about the character of the Creator. Drawing those connections will help us understand who God is, and what right relationships ought to look like between humans, the environment, and our Creator.
