MASSENA — The Friends of the Robert Moses State Park Nature Center will hold its annual spring break day camp next week, providing area children with a fun way to continue learning while school is not in session.

Linda M. Besio, education and recreation specialist, said each day of the camp will give children a new opportunity to learn about something connected to the outdoors, as well as a fun craft project for them to take home.

Monday’s session is titled “River Monsters.” “Basically we’re going to talk about big fish and other types of animals that live in the river,” she said.

On Tuesday, children will learn about sundials. “We’re going to learn how to tell time by the sun and make several different sundials,” she said.

Ms. Besio said Wednesday’s lesson is titled “Turtles and Amphibians.” Students will discuss and learn the difference between reptiles and amphibians. “What’s the difference between a turtle and a salamander?” she asked. “We’ll learn all about it.”

Ms. Besio said Thursday’s session, “Fairy Houses and Gnome Homes,” will include more of a focus on that day’s craft project. “We’re going to be using gathered natural products to create homes for the fairies and gnomes in your garden,” she said.

The week will conclude Friday with a lesson about the state bird, the bluebird.

Each session will run from 10 a.m. to noon at the Hawkins Point Visitors Center.

While not required, advanced registration is suggested, as space is limited.

To RSVP, call 705-5022 and leave a message or send an email to ncrebirth@yahoo.com with the number of children you are planning to bring.
