Boothbay Region Land Trust

Register now for Junior Naturalist Summer Camp

Wed, 05/15/2019 - 2:30pm

Boothbay Region Land Trust is excited to offer two sessions of an all new, half-day summer camp for children ages 6-12 in partnership with the Boothbay Region YMCA. Environmental Educator Tracey Hall will lead both sessions of camp, which will focus on introducing young naturalists to the outdoors and the wonders of nature through visits to BRLT preserves throughout the region. Campers will explore our preserves through a variety of activities over the course of the week, such as dipping nets in a pond to see what critters call it home, adopting a tree, building a survival shelter, investigating a rotting log, create nature art, and many more adventures.

Camps will be offered the weeks of July 15-19 and August 12-16 and will run between 9 a.m. and noon. Campers will be dropped off at Camp Knickerbocker and will travel by bus to BRLT preserves each day. Registration is through the Boothbay Region YMCA and is available now online through their website, or by calling the YMCA and asking to speak with the camp registrar.

This camp is made possible through the sponsoring support of Dead River Company. Boothbay Region Land Trust is a non-profit land conservation and education organization with the mission to conserve, for the public benefit the natural habitat, scenic beauty and working land of the Boothbay region.
