Campers will become experts in animal architecture as they explore how various animals of all kinds build their homes. From the smallest caddisfly larva case to the largest beaver dam, discover how and why certain creatures build homes the way that they do.  Campers will investigate the special characteristics, functions, and habitats of each dwelling and even practice their engineering skills by picking a few favorite examples and attempting to recreate these amazing structures. You will be fascinated by all of the different ways animals create a place to call home sweet home.  Storrs Pond Recreation Area offers exceptional opportunities for on-water adventures including fishing, canoeing, and swimming.*  

 

 *A certified lifeguard will be present during all swimming and boating activities
