The goal of Highlands Expedition Camp is to immerse campers in discovery of our local ecosystems, both to allow them to learn about their backyard ecology, and also gain a sense a responsibility towards stewardship of that land. There will be guided lessons- through discussion, games and crafts - as well as encouragement of individual learning through journaling and research.
Our goal is to create a safe and supportive space for our campers to express themselves, build confidence, grow friendships and have FUN - and learn some science along the way. By engaging campers in outdoor learning, we hope to provide them with an unforgettable summer camp experience and a lifelong connection to the world around them.
