Explore the ecosystems of Portland from farms and forests to fields and rivers in a fun, creative, and nurturing atmosphere. Campers develop skills in a variety of areas from fort building to cooking, gardening, botanical arts, sewing, theatre production, fishing and much more.
Through this 4-H Summer Day camp youth will have the opportunity to experience and explore the unique Portland ecosystems in North Portland (farms, forests and rivers). Youth will learn how these ecosystems are interconnected and how they came to effect North Portland and the area's history. Campers will be engaged in creative hands-on activities as well as time to just explore and experience unstructured summer play. Field trips to explore the local ecosystems will be included. As members of a camp community Campers will work in small groups and be involved in daily camp chores and responsibilities.
Mornings at camp will be devoted to project learning (forest explorations, farm explorations, river explorations, cooking, etc) and the afternoons youth will participate in free choice interest areas (theatre, fort building and construction, botanical arts, sewing, etc.)
