Waimea Nature Camp is back for Summer 2015!
My child absolutely loved Nature Camp. It provided her the opportunity to explore, get dirty, and have fun. When asked what her favorite thing is, her reply, out of ALL the things in the world, was “Nature Camp.”
We have heard similar things from many, many parents over the years. Take equal doses of outdoor play, exploration, learning about natural science, and genuine caring within a family atmosphere, and you have the perfect formula for the magic called Waimea Nature Camp.
Waimea Nature Camp is for kids who like to learn about nature, climb trees, wade in streams, sing silly songs, create crafts, and collect tadpoles. We will explore our forests and streams, and learn about watersheds: the connections between the sky, the land and the sea. As always, a big part of nature camp is simply being kids, getting dirty, and playing together!
Philosophy Waimea Nature Camp is rooted in values of respect for the earth and environment, service to the community, striving to understand nature and find peace, and equality between people.
Enrollment Students entering grades 2-8 are encouraged to apply for the 20 positions in Nature Camp each week. Applicants must be outdoor enthusiasts, willing to get wet and/or dirty, and to respect life in its many forms. Camp fee is $150 per week, with generous scholarships available for all qualified students, and includes cost of transportation for field trips, snacks, and supplies.
Location “Home base” for Waimea Nature Camp is The Kohala Center, located in the historic Lindsey House in central Waimea. Every day, campers will be traveling on field trips to exciting natural locations . . to the streams, to the forests, to the mountains.
To Bring Campers will bring a sack lunch and water every day, and will be provided with a healthy snack. Campers need to wear clothes and closed-toe shoes that can get very wet and dirty. Candy, soda, junk food, toys, fancy clothes or jewelry, and electronics are not permitted.
Schedule Drop off between 8:00- 9 am; pick up at 3 pm.
