Kids get outside at Eco Camps


    The Environmental Resource Center in Ketchum offers two series of Eco Camps in the summer of 2014.
    Day Camp Adventures are for kids in grades 2-6. The Overnight Environmental Outdoor Leadership Camps are designed for older students entering grades 7-9.
    This year’s Day Camp Adventures are held in partnership with the Blaine County Recreation District.
    Overnight camps are held next to Prairie Creek, where campers are surrounded by acres of land for science discovery.
    Days are spent exploring the diversity of nature with professional educators. Evenings are full of summer fun. Meals are incorporated within the curriculum to highlight the importance of local and organic food systems.
    This summer’s Day Camp Adventures program is:
    June 16-19—“Lift Off: The Science of Flight.” Kids learn about the mysteries of flight.
    July 7-10—“Secrets of Underwater Life.” Campers explore riparian ecosystems and learn about underwater creatures.
    Aug. 11-14—“Night Stalkers, Day Risers.” Why some animals lurk in the dark and others prefer the light.
    Programs for the Overnight Leadership Camp are:
    July 28-Aug. 1: “Mountain Survival.” Learn more about outdoor skills, limited to 16 campers, register early.
    Aug. 4-8—“Sense of Place: Discovering Our Alpine Ecosystem.” Explore our beautiful mountain landscape.
