A Sense of Wonder Girls’ Camp
Apr 01, 2019 01:09AM
Full Circle Susquehanna, Inc. is sponsoring the 24th Sense of Wonder eco-feminist camp for girls ages 8 to 15, from June 17 to 21, at Millport Conservancy. This year's theme is Resilience. Girls will experience the beauty and mystery of nature; sing and make music; see and learn about female role models who hold a deep regard for the Earth and work to change the world; and acquire a stronger sense of self, empowerment and trust.
Participants will learn about the Eastern Woodlands habitats and identify native plants, animals and insects. They will explore aquatic life in a restored stream habitat, develop a personal sense of the sacredness of the Earth and experience nature as interconnected, interactive and challenging. Crafts will be made using natural materials.
The camp’s philosophy comes from the words of Rachel Carson, “If I had influence over the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children, I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.”
Location: 737 E. Millport Rd., Lititz. For more information or to receive a registration form, email [email protected].
