Summer Leadership Camp
Environmental Leadership Camps
This year we are hosting a brand new camp! Our Environmental leadership day camps will give teens ages 13 to 15 the opportunity to explore environmental careers, conduct fun outdoor experiments, and share ideas on how we should tackle environmental issues such as climate change. Throughout the week, campers will dig into ten fields of environmental careers, from wildlife conservation to environmental engineering. Campers will be taking part in outdoor activities such as invasive species pulls, team debates, and fun outdoor games. If you are interested in pursuing a career within environmental science and love being outdoors and exploring diverse ecosystems such as Burns Bog, this camp is for you!
