Class Description

In this weekend camp experience, participants will be tuning into the energy of the natural world, to become aware of how energy effects us every day of our life.

  • Learn how important it is to use our personal and the Earth’s energy wisely. Discuss how to conserve energy, plus touching upon renewable energy in wind and solar power.

  • Efficient ways for animals to travel, touching upon tracking gates and migration patterns.

  • Study the night sky, looking at constellations and the moon.

  • Biking as most efficient means of travel for people. Maintenance and safety.

  • During food preparations, we talk about how our food choices effect our energy level.

  • With fun activities we do touch upon many educational aspects of science, math, the outdoors, and environmental stewardship.

  • We conclude the weekend by doing a Community Service Energy project here at Camp Tonkawa.

  • If troops provide a life guard we can provide canoe time.
