IRWP Watershed Summer Camp Registration is open!
Greetings Campers (and Camper Parents),
We hope you will join us for our Watershed Summer Camp in 2018!
In order to tailor our curriculum to your camper and to strategically focus on water, watersheds, and conservation stewardship, our program has substantially changed this year. Each week will have different subject-areas and focus on learners of different ages. Please find below a detailed description for each week.
Please also note that the pricing structure has changed and will be based on self-reported household annual income. Pricing will be:
<$40,000 = $40.00/camper/week
$40,000 - $60,000 = $60.00/camper/week
$60,000 - $90,000 = $90.00/camper/week
>$90,000 = $120.00/camper/week
Please feel free to contact Casey Rector, IRWP Program Manager, with any follow-up questions or for additional information. Casey can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you this summer!
Week 1: June 11 to 15, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Ages 7 to 9 year olds
A field trip to a local farm will take place on Wednesday. Campers will visit local Osage Creek to collect streambed critters and learn about aquatic habitat (as well as play in the stream!). They'll also learn about local farming, as agriculture is an important land use in our watershed.
Each day, campers will create a poster specific to the concept of that day, with a poster contest on the last day. We will have a guest speaker each day from local organizations that work on water quality in Northwest Arkansas. Each child will have a break at the end of each day to reflect and journal on what they have learned.
Week 2: June 25 to 29, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Ages 9+ years old
Week 3: July 9 to 13, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Ages 9+ years old
Week 4: July 23 to 27, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Ages 9+ years old
Students will take two field trips:
1. Campers will travel to local Osage Creek to conduct assessment methods learned at IRWP's Watershed Sanctuary.
2. Campers will practice conservation stewardhip by participating in a creek clean-up.
We will have a guest speaker each day from local organizations that work on water quality in Northwest Arkansas.
