E-CAMP

Update on Summer E-CAMP (posted 7/2/20)

We are excited to run E-CAMP on July 27-31! This camp will be run on a 5-day schedule, at 8:30am-4:30pm each day.

We have decided to cancel the overnight trip to the CSU Mountain Campus, we would not be able to run this trip while adhering to distancing guidelines. The entire E-CAMP program will take place at the ELC property.

E-CAMP is our program for students in grades 6-8! We go on outdoor adventures and explore nature; it’s all about learning and hanging out with friends and peers. E-CAMP runs in the summer, fall and spring; each section is a little different, scroll down for a full description of each program. Each session focuses on positive experiences in nature, building community and learning about the natural world around us.

Summer 2020

Ages: open to students entering 6th-8th grade in fall 2020

Note: Summer E-CAMP is now full. Please email us at elc@csuelc.org to be added to the wait list.

This camp aims to connect youth entering grades 6-8 to the natural world through learner-led inquiry, hands-on, active exploration all while having fun in a community of peers.

This is the perfect camp for students who are interested in wildlife, the environment, and want to take action to protect and restore the natural areas they love. We will learn about wildlife by recording our wildlife observations at the ELC. Then, we will dive deeper into our study of ecosystems by exploring what keeps the environment healthy and how interactions between all living things helps our natural areas thrive. Finally, we will practice being good stewards of the ELC by taking action in a hands-on ecological restoration project with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers.

Registration and Cost

Cost for this week of camp is $115 per child for ELC members; $125 per child for non-members.
