The Environmental Awareness Camp is perfect for the camper who is looking for a blend of activities centered on the exploration of environmental concerns. Campers will gain interest in the conservation and preservation of our planet and beyond.
Daily outdoor activities and explorations both locally and on weekly field trips will help campers learn hands-on about how to become more environmentally-minded. Field trips in previous years have included:
Watchung Reservation, Sandy Hook, Jenkinson’s Aquarium, Liberty Science Center and other environmental and educational centers.
Weekly activities will incorporate environmental discussions and arts and crafts using products directly from the natural environment and man-made recycled materials. Level-appropriate swim instruction occurs three times a week and is followed by free swim time. Creative recreation is scheduled to keep campers healthy and active while also enjoying nature hikes, collecting specimens and participating in sculpture and molding projects. This camp is for the inquisitive camper who is looking to gain knowledge about the world we live in. Be prepared to have lots of conversations about our planet and beyond at the dinner table each evening!
