The beginning of the school year is just around the corner, and that means most summer camps are coming to an end.

We headed to the Western North Carolina Nature Center, where campers are learning about the circle of life.

"Baby deers can have spots to help them camouflage, so they camouflage into the grass, and so (a) predator gets them when their mom goes to get food," said Natalie, a camper.

The kids played a game called prey and predators. The kids in the red shirts are trying to catch the other campers, who get five seconds to try and make it to their shelter.

From there it's time to safely gather their food.

The first through third graders say they've learned a lot about what happens to animals in the wild.

"Predators are animals that eat other animals and prey are herbivores," said Elias, a camper.

This was the last session for the Nature Centers' summer camps.

This year they taught hundreds of children about the natural world outside.
