Earth Camp: Outdoor Adventures and Nature Explorations

Unfortunately, due the current COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Earth Camp has been canceled. We look forward to seeing you out in the field in 2021!

Discover local trails, wetlands, salt marshes, beaches, and woodlands in “The Greenest Borough.” Campers will explore what lies beneath the shore’s edge at Great Kills Beach, study pond life at Wolfe’s Pond Park, and investigate animal tracks while learning about entomology at Mount Loretto. Over the course of two weeks, kids will build their science skills through hands-on STEM activities and make new friends discovering some of Staten Island’s rarest green spaces. Each camper will receive their own Field Discovery Kit and keep a scientific field journal to record daily observations.

Take a look at some of the fun from the last few years of Earth Camp!
