For campers entering grades 4-6
Planet Earth Camp is a five day, four night residential camp for students that love the outdoors. Through a variety of hands-on activities, campers will investigate the natural environment and will participate in an environmental action project. Every day we challenge our campers to practice sustainable living by conserving water and electricity, reducing food waste, and even cooking a sustainable, locally-sourced meal. And of course our campers will enjoy a variety of classic summer camp activities such as swimming, field games, archery, fishing, crabbing, and canoeing!
Who Can Participate?
All Outdoor Education camps are open to any student who has an interest in the environment, making new friends, adventure, and personal growth.
Eóin O’Neill, Arlington Echo Outdoor Educator, will direct the camp. Our staff consists of AACPS teachers as well as college students with experience in the areas of outdoor and environmental education. Volunteer counselors-in-training support the staff in many ways.
