Summer Ecology Camp 2016 Registration Opens

What are YOU doing this summer? For the third year, Merryspring and Knox-Lincoln Country Soil & Water Conservation District are teaming up to provide two weeks of Summer Ecology Camp for two age groups.

Kids ages 7 to 9 will be in Eco-Explorers during the week of June 27 through July 1. Young children ages 4 to 6 can attend Little Sprouts from July 11 through July 15. Both weeks of camp are morning programs ending by 12:00 noon.
Summer Ecology camps offer a week of hands-on, outdoor learning where kids receive an introduction to nature, ecology, and natural resources through hands-on play, outdoor science activities, observation, nature walks, and gardening. Each day offers a different theme, with its own unique activities.

Children can expect to be active and outdoors all morning. Themed snacks and water will be provided each day.
