Participants will learn all about how our lakes serve as valuable fish and wildlife habitat, how aquatic plants influence lake health, and how activities in our yards and cities impact local lakes.
This educational and fun day camp is intended for youth ages 13-18 years old, but all youth 8-18 are welcome. Topics discussed at the event may be too advanced for youth under 13, but with assistance from a sibling, their parent, or a guardian they may still enjoy the activities.
Participants will rotate through hands-on learning stations featuring kayaking skills, fishing skills, lake health, and watershed protection information.
Please note that each adult may bring up to three youth with them, but registration is required.
- Any youth who attends with an adult who is not their legal parent or guardian will need the participation form and the activity waiver signed by their legal parent or guardian in order to participate.
- These forms will be included in the registration process, in the confirmation email, and in the reminder email. If you do not receive them, please reach out to us to request a copy of these forms at least three business days prior to the event.
