Summer Learning Program: Eco-Camp - Let's Take a Hike, Angelica and Beyond Outdoor Adventure

From easy walks to more vigorous hikes, campers will get out in the woods this week – here and at Hawk Mountain! Push your limits and see how far you can dive into the woods, all while exploring the creatures and habitat around us and how humans and animals use them!
Visitor: Evan Corondi from Berks County Conservation District Special Excursion: Hawk Mountain
Ages 3-5: The campers in this group will hike at their own ability level in and around the wetlands. They will create tree rubbings, leaf rubbings, and observe what lives in the different types of trees.

Ages 6-7: Like the younger campers, they will be hiking in and around the wetlands and doing similar activities as the 3-5 age group.

Ages 8-10: This group will learn how to hike and what things they need to take with them. As they hike in different areas, the campers will learn about the trees and why they live and do well in that area. It will be a time for the kids to be involved with using their senses to learn about the different areas hiked. Ages 11-12: This group will learn how to hike and what things they need to take with them. In addition, they will learn about the history in the areas they hike each day. This group of campers will also learn about edible plants found in nature as well as some geology in the area they are hiking.
