Thank you to all of the campers, ages 7 to 10 years old, who visited the Nature Explorer Camp hosted by Frost Campus Sustainability!
The purpose of the camp, which was held July 4 – 8 and July 18 – 22 in Lindsay, Ont., was to interest children in the environment and natural sciences. “It is important to start at a young age and interest children in the environment if you want to make a change,” said Tania Clerac, Sustainability Projects Coordinator.
Each camp day had a theme, such as: Trees/Rocks, Water/Invertebrates, Wildlife, Plants/Soil, Weather/Wilderness Skills. Camp activities include: invertebrate sampling in the ponds and creek, making fossils, building a bee hotel, wildlife tracking, building shelter, identifying rocks and minerals, learning about camouflage, animal signs scavenger hunt, identifying and reporting invasive species, and more!
“Our son had a fantastic week where he couldn’t wait to wake up and go each day,” said Elisa Mulcaster, a parent of one camper. “We have now done many invasive species hunts around our property.”
