JACKSON – Children can get outdoors and explore nature at MDWFP’s Mississippi Museum of Natural Science day camps this summer. Age-appropriate camps are offered for preschoolers and children entering kindergarten through entering twelfth grade. “Campers spend their time enjoying outdoor investigations and fun hands-on learning opportunities,” says Museum Director Charles Knight.
