Eco Adventure Day Camp is a one-to-three day educational adventure open to students entering 5th-8th grades. Explore the outdoors in scenic Calhoun County with staff from the Center for American Archeology and McCully Heritage Project, and learn how people have interacted with the natural world and its resources since prehistoric times.

Participants may attend just one day or all three. Every camp day builds on the last, but are designed so those who can’t attend every day can join the fun right away. Each day will include a hike and activities to create ancient tools and technology using local natural resources. Hikes include information about methods of navigation, plants, wildlife, geology, archaeology and more.

Activities

Day 1: Orienteering Hike, ceramics, and cordage
Day 2: GPS Hike, stone tools, and fire-making
Day 3: Big Hike, picnic lunch, spear-throwing
