Special fall camp to be held over Collier County public schools’ Thanksgiving break
With registration open Oct. 5, young environmental enthusiasts can now sign up for fall and winter 2015 camps at the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. The organization is introducing its new “Cool Coastlines” fall camp, to take place Nov. 23-24 when Collier County public schools are out for the Thanksgiving holiday. The long-time favorite, “Wondrous Wildlife” annual winter camp, is scheduled for Dec. 29-30. The two-day camps are designed for second- through fifth-grade children, and will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each day will offer a different field trip adventure into Southwest Florida ecosystems. Pricing for the camps are $60 per day for Conservancy members and $80 per day for non-members.
The special “Cool Coastlines” fall camp will allow children to join the Conservancy for an aquatic adventure exploring the cool coastlines of Southwest Florida. The camp will feature field trips to wet and wild places, where children will discover unique creatures that live in these salty habitats. The “Wondrous Wildlife” winter camp will take children outside to explore the wondrous wildlife of Southwest Florida. Campers will take field trips to different ecosystems, and discover how plants and animals keep warm during the winter.
“Our annual winter camp has been a hit within our community and we are excited to launch the new fall camp here at the Conservancy,” said Rob Moher, president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. “We know children will enjoy being a part of these adventures, and we look forward to seeing how these nature explorations will play a role in creating more knowledgeable and environmentally-aware leaders for the future.”
Space is limited for the upcoming camps and is anticipated to fill quickly. Registration can be completed online atwww.Conservancy.org/Camps. For more information about the fall or winter camps, call Cheryl Latif 239-262-0304, extension 266.
