Our brand new Earth Heroes camp appeals to all kids who love exploring the outdoors. This is a one-of-a-kind experience where kids will learn about our amazing urban forests and river and how to take care of them. We will learn about and explore different ecosystems in the park – from the forest, to streams and wetlands that feed the James River, to the river itself. This unique opportunity provides professional instruction and guidance in learning to explore and enjoy the natural world around us through activities like hands-on science experiments, nature-themed games, unstructured exploration, and more. Life jackets will be worn while swimming in the river. From rock hopping on the river banks and discovering what lives in the shallow pools on the river’s edge, to identifying trees in the forest, to watching an osprey dive for fish, this camp is all about learning to love and appreciate our natural spaces right here in the city.
Earth Heroes Camp will be from 8:30 A.M. to 3:30 P.M., and is held on and around RVA’s awesome James River Park System, the river, and urban forests. Camp is led by experienced environmental and outdoor educators.
