This is a unique day camp that includes field trips, data collection, problem solving, and leadership in our watershed. This four-day camp is for young women, 6th – 8th grade, who want to learn more about our world and how they can use their talents to take care of it. These four days will be filled with memorable experiences that help shape a deep understanding of our local water resources and some problems that need solving within it.
Day 1 of the camp will bring the girls into the mountains and to headwater streams, the source of the natural surface water in our watershed. Day 2, the campers will explore the Santa Ana River. Day 3, campers will see where the water from our mountains and rivers end up with a day at the beach. Day 4, the final day of camp, campers will prepare their findings and solutions to problems in the watershed to their families and community members.
Host of PBS show Curiosity Quest, Joel Greene, will join the camp to see what the girls have observed and what problems they have solutions for.
Location: Each day will start and end at the Chino Basin Water Conservation District’s Water Conservation Center, located at 4594 San Bernardino St in Montclair. Transportation to and from field trip sites will be provided.
