Camp EcoAdventure Community Program
Rock Eagle is excited to open an additional EcoAdventure session!
Session 1: April 3-7th 2017
Session 2: April 10-14th 2017
Camp EcoAdventure is an environmental education day camp open to ages 6 - 11 years old. The goal of the program is to offer an affordable, educational, and fun day camp to children who are interested in our local natural resources.
Camp EcoAdventure objectives are to:
- create awareness and appreciation of our surrounding natural environment,
- promote natural resource conservation in our daily lives,
- introduce & promote the visual arts as a means of expression,
- provide a safe and fun learning environment for all campers,
- and have a positive outdoor experience for all!
2017 Program Dates and Themes
Monday, April 3rd & 10th
Do cows dream? Can a snake dig holes? Does moss only grow on the north side of a tree? Nature mysteries will be debunked by EcoDetectives! Campers will test their sleuthing skills by looking for animal tracks around Rock Eagle.
Super Soil & Dirt Dirt
Tuesday, April 4th & 11th
Campers will get their hands dirty learning about gardening, plant life, and pollinators. While learning about “good” and “bad” bugs, campers will have the opportunity to meet some of Rock Eagle’s very own creepy crawlies.
Wednesday, April 5th & 12th
Hop, slither, or fly behind the scenes of our animal laboratories and learn how to care for Rock Eagle’s education animals! From feeding to animal enrichment, we do it all during “Keeper” Camp! To celebrate our animal friends, campers will morph into their favorite feathered, furry or scaly creature to participate in our annual EcoAdventure animal parade.
Blast to the Past
Thurday, April 6th & 13th
Travel back in time as we learn about Native Americans and the early homesteaders that lived at Rock Eagle. Campers will play historic games, participate in a traditional campfire, and help make a waddle and daub hut. Campers will enjoy a picnic lunch at Rock Eagle’s living history site.
Friday, April 7th & 14th
Prepare to get wet as we spend the whole day in and around Rock Eagle Lake. With fishing, canoeing, and a creek hike on the agenda, things are sure to get wet & wild.
