rare Summer ECO Camp subsidizes

These week-long day camps provide children with the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills, values, and motivation necessary to become environmentally-responsible community members – all while having fun in a primarily outdoors environment.

 

We have full week ECO Camp subsidies available for children aged 6-12 located in Cambridge or North Dumfries who would otherwise be unable to participate in camp programs.

 

In some cases, this may also cover transportation costs to and from camp should that be a barrier for families. We are reaching out to you and your organizations in hopes that you can help us reach families and children who may be interested in this opportunity.

 

Reach out to Jenna Quinn jenna.quinn@raresites.org directly, if you want to recommend a child or family.
