Children Ages 6-12
Campers will explore science, nature, and history through outdoor exploration and play in this full-day, week long camp.
The theme for 2022 is Symbols of Our State. Learn about special animals, plants, minerals, and more that symbolize the state of Illinois. Campers will learn the history of these symbols, then try to find some through engaging activities like canoeing, fishing, breaking geodes, hiking, and more.
Earth Adventure campers should bring a sack lunch. Morning and afternoon snacks will be provided. We have many adventures in store, so always dress for the weather and for getting dirty!
Camp meets at the Information Shelter at Rock Springs Conservation Area. Pick and choose which weeks to come, or attend all nine from June 6 through August 12. (NOTE: camp will not be held the week of July 4-8.)
In addition to the on-site activities planned each week, campers will also enjoy one day off-site to go swimming and one-day off-site for a field trip. All field trips and activities are subject to change.
Space is limited to 25 campers each week. All Conservation District camps are subject to COVID-19 guidelines for our area, and camp activities are subject to change.
