Stonewall to host children’s nature camp

Stonewall State Park Foundation will host a four-day, hands-on Nature Odyssey camp July 14-17, open to all children going into grades 2-7. The foundation conducts a variety of special programs each year at Stonewall Resort State Park.

Samantha Norris, community outreach director for Stonewall Resort, said, “Stonewall Resort State Park offers many educational and recreational opportunities for children. Nature Odyssey campers will have the opportunity to learn about area wildlife, hike throughout our trail system and explore the nature around them.”

Norris said the day-camp runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will be led by Barbara Tucker, a skilled education professional with many years of experience. Tucker is a longtime resident of Lewis County who currently teaches at Jane Lew Elementary school.

Campers will be divided into groups by age – second through fourth graders and fifth through seventh graders – and will spend the day working within their groups. Lunch will be provided and is included in the cost of the camp.

A discount will be given to those who complete early registration for the entire week. Registration will include all supplies needed for the educational and recreational activities. All registrants must complete a liability waiver, emergency contact form and a medical overview of special needs.

This camp was made possible by donations from BrickStreet Foundation, ACCESS Midstream Partners, CONSOL Energy, Lewis County Commission, Central Supply, GAI Consultants, Jane Lew Lions Club and the Rotary Club of Weston.
