Calling all explorers! Join us as we embark on a week long adventure along the grounds of Ringwood State Park. Recruits will explore numerous hiking trails while using their personalized identification guides to analyze the environment around them. Explorations into the Botanical Gardens, streams, forests, and ponds will reveal critters and creatures of all shapes and sizes. Recruits will be expanding their knowledge and appreciation of the natural world in pursuit of an "I Respect My Environment" badge of honor. Recruits will participate in a respectful wildlife experience and earn their own animal name. Participants should bring a bagged lunch daily with their name on it. We will end the week with a special BBQ lunch on Friday. Parents must transport their child to and from the camp. Please see the attached documents under forms about what to bring each day, where to drop off your child each morning and rainy day procedures (scroll through document to the Wilderness Club). Camp will take place rain or shine. Participants will receive a camp t-shirt (we cannot guarantee requested sizes for campers that register after June 24th). Pre-registration is required. Registration deadline is Friday, July 22nd. Instruction by: Lokai Rose. Limit is 30 per camp.
