Unique Educational Summer Experience for Children at Lakehead University’s Eco-Literacy Camp

(May 7, 2009 —Thunder Bay, ON)
An exciting summer camp offered to children at Lakehead University is running this July. The Faculty of Education’s Department of Lifelong Learning will be hosting the Eco-Literacy Adventure Camp, an educational program that uses ecologically based reading material and includes high-energy games, outdoor activities, art projects, and other creative approaches to reading comprehension.

“Eco-Literacy Adventure Camp is a chance for children to learn about ecology, improve their reading skills, and have a lot of fun over the summer holidays,” says Rusty Brown of the Department of Lifelong Learning.

Eco-Literacy Adventure Camp is a summer camp for children entering grades 4, 5, 6, and 7 in September, that combines literacy skill development with ecology, art projects, fitness, and games to provide a quality learning experience that is both fun and interesting. Each child receives a tee-shirt and an eco-book to take home at the end of camp.

Early registration closes on May 31. The cost before May 31 is $150 a week. After that date, the cost is $180 a week. Camp dates are: July 6-10, July 13-17, July 20-24, and July 27-31. The camps run from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Bora Laskin Building, Lakehead University.
