Annual Eco-Camp at Berks Nature
Berks Nature Eco-Camp will begin June 11, for preschool-aged children through eighth grade, at The Nature Place at Angelica Park, in Reading, with new themes offered throughout nine weeks of summer. Led by veteran teachers, and supported by members of the staff, eco-campers will grow their understanding of nature, earth systems and commitment to the stewardship of the Earth through hands-on activities and outdoor exploration.
New this year are excursion activities, for grades three through eight, designed for exploration of other environmental resources in the community, including Union Canal, Nolde Forest, Hawk Mountain, French Creek State Park and the Ken Grill Pool.
“At Berks Nature, we believe nature is essential to our quality of life,” shares Camp Co-Director Dave Renninger. “We’re excited to welcome campers back for another season of exploration, learning, fun and nature-play.”
