Environmental Education at camp

Camp Role in Environmental Literacy

 The "No Child Left Inside" (NCLI) Act that was re-introduced to congress in July 2013 would amend the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 to develop environmental literacy plans for kids. Our camps can provide valuable resources as places where children and youth can explore a sense of wonder and excitement about being in a natural setting. As Congress considers the proposed amendment, consider how our camps and retreats, as facilities and programs, might further encourage environmental education.
