Summer Ecology Camp

**2021 SUMMER ECOLOGY CAMPS CANCELED**

In the best interest of public health and safety for families during
the COVID-19 pandemic, Merryspring Nature Center and Knox-Lincoln Soil &
Water Conservation District will be canceling their popular joint Summer
Ecology Camps for 2021. This includes both Eco-Explorers and Little
Sprouts camps.

It is the decision of both organizations that the hands-on, experiential
activities of Summer Ecology Camps may not lend themselves safely to
social-distancing guidelines, and in the interest of the health of our
young campers and staff both programs are canceled. Merryspring and
KLSWCD staffers will miss seeing excited campers this season,
some of whom have attended for several years.

In lieu of Summer Ecology Camps, Merryspring will offer some free alternative
programs for families and children this summer that can be conducted
outdoors in a safe way. These will include our popular Free Family
Fridays as well as the return of our popular Explorer Kit program with KLSWCD.
