We have recently been getting involved with our local youth gardeners program...and loving it! The girls did a few sessions of Green Adventures during the school year and are now having the time of their lives during the Green Adventures Summer Camp. I almost didn't sign them up because they were already signed up for a soccer camp and hip hop class in June...but boy am I glad I decide to sign them up. They had so much fun and they have declared that they are doing the rest of the summer camps (there are 3 more).
The program is run by free spirited Bill who is a Kindergarten teacher in town and kind hearted Janessa who is an intern. They planted, hiked, did crafts, made healthy and fun snacks, got dirty, played, and made new friends.
During the 5 day camp a community was created of 5-12 year olds who not only had fun, but learned a lot about treating people and our Earth with respect.
They learned about nurturing the environment, their community and their bodies in a fun, hands-on setting. This little community of fresh young minds brought home recycled crafts, seeds to plant, and a desire to learn more.
We only planned on attending the June Camp, however after their excitement we have decided to do all 4 camps. The next camp is July 9-13 and is all about having fun with entomology: the study of insects, by meeting them up close and personal. The camp is for any child age 5-12 and goes from 8:30-11:30. The tuition is $85 per child, however there are sibling discounts and discounts for signing up for more than 1 session. Signing up is easy..just follow this link and sign up for whichever session works for you. If you are in Loveland or surrounding towns, I would highly recommend having your children check out this fun summer Green Adventures Camp!
