Today we have a guest post from the Phillips Farm Pioneer Day Camp, enjoy learning about this opportunity for the youth of Latah County.
This summer, Moscow Parks and Recreation, Latah County Parks and Recreation, and the Friends of Phillips Farm, Inc. are offering a Pioneer Day Camp for kids going into 2nd through 6th grade. Participants will embark on an exciting journey through the natural world, learning outdoor skills and self-sufficiency at the Phillips Farm County Park.
Throughout the week, campers will hike trails, explore the local pond, solve real problems, and engage in hands-on activities that allow them to explore nature and gain confidence in pioneer skills. Songs, games, and adventures outdoors will make this camp a true highlight of summer.
Two sessions (July 14-18 and July 21-25) will be led by Camp Director Nicole Campbell and Assistant Director Chelsea Rose, both experienced outdoor educators, and will take place on the beautiful forested and open trails of the Phillips Farm County Park, just 5 miles north of Moscow. Campers can attend one or both sessions, since activities will be varied. The program will go from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and parents will drop off and pick up participants at the park each day. The camp fees are $150/week for Moscow residents, $151 for nonresidents, but scholarships are available. Contact Kathy Dawes (208-310-2922) for more information.
Nicole Campbell previously served as educational program coordinator for Henry Coe State Park in California, taught at a “living history” program, and has had several years of experience teaching at an outdoor school and designing hands-on lessons for youth.
