From July 23rd- July 27th, children ages 7-12 will explore within the 282 acres of grasslands, woodlands, and coastal sage scrub that make up Ernest E. Debs Park. With more than 140 bird species and over 100 native plant species, there is never a dull day at Debs!
Adventure Camp will run one week in July, with each day marked by a different ecologically themed adventure, where children will discover the incredible biodiversity of the local flora and fauna found within Northeast LA, the LA River watershed, and its tributary, the Arroyo Seco. Daily themes will explore urban wildlife including plants, birds, and other non-avifauna of Debs Park. Children will engage in activities that examine plant and animal adaptations and relationships, watershed health, wildlife ecology and types of habitat, community science, habitat restoration and stewardship, environmental conservation and human impacts, and the natural and cultural history of Debs Park- all while having TONS of fun in the outdoors!
Our day Adventure Camp curriculum is designed in support of our mission: to connect people to nature and to enrich children’s lives through meaningful, inclusive experiences in the outdoors. Through fun hands-on, science-based exploration and immersion in the natural world, we aim to create future environmental stewards that will continue to enrich their communities and carry with them a sense of equity and responsibility for our environment. Depending on the daily theme, campers may become naturalists, botanists and ethnobotanists, native plant gardeners, ornithologists, conservationists, wildlife biologists, hydrologists, and of course, Adventurers- all while learning about the importance of cooperation, community, and sustainability.
Adventure Camp creates a safe and fun space for exploring, learning, asking questions, and sharing ideas and stories. Examples of activities include gardening, hiking, nature journaling and arts & crafts, birding, silent meditation, leadership and trust-building games, camp songs, foraging, wilderness skills, and ethical outdoor practices (Leave No Trace).
