Environmental Camp

“Rainin’ Cats and Dogs” Environmental Day Camp

(In more serious circles a.k.a. “MS4- BMP” Camp)
(Instructor:  Paul Garrett, assisted by a Senior Counselor)

In a very fun, interesting, and hands-on way, the camp teaches the problems created by severe rain storms. In an equally fun and interesting way, the campers will learn what they, their families, and neighbors can/should do to minimize the chances of  flooding, pollution,  and destruction,  while attempting to keep the water on their property for later use.  This includes a one day canoe trip with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation on Wednesday or rain date-Thursday.  Participants will need their own transportation to and from 1731 South York Street, Mechanicsburg on Tuesday and from the Boat Launch on the downstream end of City Island on Wednesday (Rain date Thursday for canoeing).  To register please call 737-4548 for information.  Specific questions about the camp, please call Paul Garrett at 514-3546.
