Environmental Education

 
 

What does canoeing next to a beaver dam, feeling wildlife bones, and coring a red cedar have to do with our Catholic faith? Fifth and sixth grade students at Camp Hamilton’s Environmental Education program get to experience science through a Catholic lens,  using Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato si’, and supporting the Next Generation Science Standards. This 3 or 4 day residential camping program calls students, through the voice of our Holy Father, to apply the science lessons and environmental stewardship beyond the old forests of Camp Hamilton to the student’s schools, churches, and communities.
