Beginning July 1, the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) is offering Family Adventures. Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases, the ELC team decided they did not want to potentially increase transmission of the virus and not offer traditional summer camps in 2020. The health and safety of our community has been, and will continue to be ELC’s primary focus.
These Lagoon Island Family Adventures will allow ELC to draw on their strengths to deliver an even greater impact— balancing outdoor activity, fun, learning and protection of health. Heather Kramer, an Environmental Educator at the ELC said, “In an effort to still be able to serve the community with outdoor opportunities, we are offering camp-like activities for the whole family to enjoy!”
Lagoon Island Family Adventures is a private family excursion for groups of up to eight people, allowing families to enjoy outdoor summer fun safely together. This two-hour program is led by an ELC Environmental Educator. The price of these private excursions is $80. Scholarship opportunities are available.
Family adventurers can choose three activities, including seine net fishing, campfire cooking, survivor hour, nature journaling and an aquarium experience. ELC’s classic activities include canoeing, pond dip netting and benthic exploration are also among the opportunities to choose from.
