Eco Camp

Eco camp is a week-long day camp for children ages 1st - 6th grade. We believe a passion for stewardship begins with cultivating a love of nature and being outdoors.

What will my child do at Eco Camp?

We'll discuss plants, animals, renewable energy, gardening, composting, recycling, and how to be a responsible caretaker of our planet. Children will be engaged in environmental education through a variety of lessons, activities, games, stories, crafts, garden experiences, outdoor play, healthy snacks, field trips, and more!


Our Camps are held at Happy Dancing Turtle on the Hunt Utilities Group Resilient Living Campus.
