Environmentally friendly

. October 18, 2012.

The Franciscan Earth Literacy Center (FELC) is dedicated to environmental education and provides many summer camp opportunities in order to educate children on different aspects of the environment. FELC summer day camps, for ages five to 12, aim to promote the appreciation of nature.

From June to August, FELC is offering seven different camps on varying topics. From June 13-17, campers can learn about gardening and farming during the Grow It, Eat It, Share It ($65) camp. Campers can also participate in Camp Dig ($60) from June 20-24, which provides a basic overview of dinosaurs, along with Native American and pioneer lifestyles. How About Those Animals? ($65) focuses on discovering the world of animals, including reptiles, birds and mammals from June 27 to July 1. Participants will be able to pet and care for the Center’s animals.  Camps run from 8am to 12pm each day, with the exceptions of “I Will Survive” and “Aquatic Adventures” which run until 3pm daily.
