Spaces are still available for the 2021 Warren County Conservation District summer conservation camps. The theme this year for all our summer camps is “Where the wild things are.”

“Come and discover the wild things that live in the water and the trees, in the ground and among the leaves and we will follow in the footsteps where the wild things are.” a WCCD statement said.

For kids in Grades 1 to 6, the two-day Kids’ Nature Camps (NCC) will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hatch Run Conservation Demonstration Zone pavilion. “Children will learn and experience the uniqueness and importance of water, soil, plants and animals in our local environment” according to WCCD. “Children at Children’s Nature Camp will also have the chance to play in the stream and fish in the pond; where some campers caught their first fish.

CNC I (students entering grades one and two) is July 27 and 28; CNC II (grades three and four) is July 15 and 16; and CNC III (grades five and six) is July 12 and 13.

Students entering Kindergarten in the fall can join the Kindergarten Nature Camp (KNC). The camp is based at the Hatch Run Pavilion and will take place from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 29.

“It will be a fun learning camp on water, plants, animals and soils – get ready to get wet and dirty”, according to WCCD. “There will be crafts, games and nature explorations.”

The cost is $ 40 per child for the CNC and $ 20 per child for the KNC.
