EcoCamp Crates

What is it? 

EcoCamp Crates are essentially summer camp in a box. Campers will receive a box filled with hands-on activities to fill 3-4 hours each day for five days. These activities are designed to increase campers’ understanding of ecosystems and sustainability. Topics covered include rivers, rocks and minerals, pollution, climate, wildlife and much more! Each crate contains the instructions and materials needed to complete the activities. Along with the activities, campers will also have access to a series of live, virtual programs with experts! During the week of July 19-23, a new virtual program will be hosted for participants each day. These programs will complement what campers are learning in the activities. 

Who is it for?

EcoCamp Crates are intended for students in Haywood County aged 8 to 12 (roughly 4th grade to 7th grade) who have adult supervision to complete the activities. The activities are aligned with state standards, so they are a great way to review, remediate and enrich your camper’s science learning. We kindly ask that you do not register more than 2 crates per household.  

How much does it cost?

Due to a generous grant, we are able to offer these crates free-of-charge for a limited number of campers.
