“Providing Opportunities to Discover, Inquire & Grow at the Dickinson College Farm”
An outdoor educational camp for youth rising into grades 4-6 is being offered at the Dickinson College Farm this summer. Dickinson College’s Center for Sustainability Education (CSE), Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM), and Farm are coming together to provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to area children. D.I.G. campers will gain a better understanding and appreciation of our local resources by participating in hands-on learning experiences connecting them to renewable energy, stream health, sustainable agriculture and culinary discoveries. The camp is designed to foster a love of the outdoors, sense of place, skills in nature journaling and crafts, and practical experience in farming and science.
Campers will Discover why the Yellow Breeches watershed is so unique, Inquire about how to connect local foods and renewable energy and water resources, and Grow as they define what is important in their own lives.
