Knowing Nature... At Our Camps PDF Print E-mail


The summer of 2012 was a great one for the Environmental Resource Center! Our overnight EcoCamps for rising 4th-9th graders immersed more than sixty children in the natural world, utilizing environmental educators as their counselors. More than half of our campers each year require some financial support in order to attend, despite the fact that EcoCamp tuition is less than the actual cost of offering the camps. This last summer, staffers offered their field groups the opportunity to express their best memories about EcoCamp, and we have assembled a few of these pieces into a booklet that demonstrates the worth of EcoCamp to these children. Many thanks to all our ERC supporters, from the ERC Board and staff, and from these campers!

Check back in early 2013 for announcements about next summer's camps and nature programs. In the meantime, take the camp tour at right, or watch the slideshows from previous years. We can’t wait to get out and play again next summer!
