The theme this year for the Warren County Conservation District summer camps is ‘Where the Wild Things Are.’
Come learn about the wild things that live in the water and the trees, in the soil and among the leaves and we’ll follow the tracks to where the wild things are.
Children’s Nature Camp (CNC) is geared towards elementary school students from 1st—6th grades and is broken up into three age groups. CNC I (July 27-28) includes children entering 1st and 2nd grade, CNC II (July 15-16) is for children entering 3rd and 4th grade, and CNC III (July 12-13) is 5th and 6th graders for the 21/22 school year. CNC will be held from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the pavilion of the Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Area on Hatch Run Road. Children will learn and discover the uniqueness and importance of water, soil, plants, and animals in our local environment.
Kids in the Children’s Nature Camp will also have a chance to play in the stream and fish in the pond; where some campers have caught their first fish. The Kindergarten Nature Camp (KNC) is for children going into Kindergarten this fall.
This camp will also be based out of the pavilion of the Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Area on Hatch Run Road. The camp will be held from 9am – 2pm on July 29th. This will be a fun-filled camp learning about water, plants, animals, and soils (be prepared to get wet and dirty). There will be crafts, games, and exploring in nature. This camp will be limited to 10 kids so act fast.
The application deadline for all CNC’s and KNC is June 23rd. The cost for each camp is CNC – $40 per child, and KNC – $20 per child. Go to www.wcconservation.org for more information and also to download application forms. You can also call 814-726-1441 or e-mail Sherry at [email protected]
