Camp Woodlands @ Downs Park Kindergarten

Due to circumstances beyond our control, kindergarten programming will temporarily take place at Down’s Park in Pasadena, MD. Questions? Contact Arlington Echo 410-222-3822.

Every AACPS kindergarten class visits Camp Woodlands in Annapolis, MD, for a one-day field experience as part of their environmental literacy unit “Trees are Terrific.” Through engaging, hands-on activities, students investigate the life cycle of a tree, learn about forest ecology, discover that trees protect water quality and take action to help the environment. Supervision and instruction are provided by Arlington Echo staff and volunteers recruited by classroom teachers. All volunteers undergo background checks. Students bring lunch to enjoy outdoors, weather permitting. Camp Woodlands is a 34-acre site owned by the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. It includes forest, stream, meadow and wetland habitats and is located on Broad Creek, an estuary of the South River.
