WESTON – Stonewall State Park Foundation will host a four-day, hands-on nature camp open to all children (both living in the community and resort guests) rising to grades 2-7 from July 14-17, Foundation officials
Samantha Norris, community outreach director for Stonewall Resort, said, “Stonewall Resort State Park offers a myriad of educational and recreational opportunities for kids of all ages. 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- 2nd through 4th graders and 5th through 7th graders, and will spend the day working within their groups. Lunch will be provided and is included in the cost of the camp.
The cost is $35 per child per day with a $5 discount (per day) for 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.
