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.
