CCCB HOSTS SUMMER CAMPS
The Cherokee County Conservation Board (CCCB) is hosting four summer camps this year. Offered annually, these camps include 2 Summer Day Camps and Jr. Naturalist Camp. Also, the CCCB will be partnering with the Plymouth County Conservation Board to offer a canoeing and overnight event called River Ramblers.
Jr. Naturalist Camp is geared towards 3-5 year olds and their guardian. This camp involves stories and hands-on activities like games and crafts. It runs June 15-17 from 9:00am-11:00am at Spring Lake Park. Registration is required by June 9th.
River Ramblers runs from July 13-15 and is for those who have completed 6th-8th grades. Participants will spend a day canoeing the Little Sioux River with an overnight stay at Martins Access. This event is a partnership with Plymouth County and has a $40 fee to cover food and some materials. Registration is required by July 7th.
“EcoEncounters” is the theme of the Cherokee County Conservation Board’s Summer Day Camp this year. Participants will learn a little bit about habitat, animal/plant homes, and animal/plant survival. Camp will be offered July 20-22 for those who have completed grades K-1st this last school year and July 27-29 for those who have completed 2nd-4th grades. Registration is due by July 14th and 21st Camp will run from 9:00am-11:30am and take place at Spring Lake Park.
Camps are offered free of charge, with the exception of River Ramblers, which has a $40 fee. Each camp has limited space. Please register participants only if they plan on attending, not to reserve a space in case they might attend. Don’t send your participant to camp if they are not feeling well.
