Once again, the ASLC is partnering with Camp Kawartha to offer a week-long Environment Camp geared towards 5 – 10 year olds.
We are offering two sessions this year: July 8 – 12 and July 15 – 20. Participants will connect with the lake environment through nature activities, drama, games and crafts. Led by the award-winning staff from Camp Kawartha, children will learn about animal adaptations, plant ecology and the unique habitats that are an integral part of the Kawartha Lakes. Participants will learn to call in birds, make bow drill fires, catch aquatic invertebrates, dance like salamanders and sing with frogs. Environment Camp is fun, active and hands-on!
NEW: ASLC & CAMP KAWARTHA present:
Young Stewards Environmental Leadership Camp:
From July 15th to 19th - 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Location: Ingleton Wells Property: (near Juniper Island on one of the Kawartha Land Trust Properties)
How do we teach future cottagers and homeowners to care for these beautiful lakes? How can we promote an ethic of stewardship that will endure for generations to come? In this exciting camp, youth from the ages of 12 to 16 will learn about the principles of effective leadership and teamwork. They’ll find out more about the natural history and ecology of the Kawartha’s region. They’ll engage on fun-hands on ecological restoration projects such as planting and building loon nesting boxes. And these young stewards will have a chance to engage in citizen science projects and be part of a longer term plan to increase the biodiversity of one of the Kawartha Land Trusts properties.
Spaces are limited
