Science Camp 2018 is scheduled for July 29th through August 2nd. Our goals are to create awareness of environmental issues, resource sustainability, land and habitat conservation. Our program provides the opportunity to experience this unique environment, to expand knowledge of the natural world and to instill a sense of stewardship and personal responsibility.
