PLUG INTO NATURE SUMMER CAMP, (JULY 10 – 14, 2017)

PLUG INTO NATURE SUMMER CAMP

What is the Plug into Nature Summer Camp?

Plug into Nature (PIN) Camp is a five-day summer camp experience for youth in Hancock County.  Campers should be entering the 3rd– 5th grade the following school year.

Where is the camp?

The Nameless Creek Youth Camp is located at 2675 S. 600 E., Greenfield, IN. The PIN Camp will take place at the Nameless Creek Youth Camp.

What did campers do at camp?

The camp will provide activities such as sports and games, nature trail/creek exploration, a water carnival, arts and crafts, and basic culinary skills. Campers will be able to enjoy a simple game of kickball and learn new water games to play during the hot summer months. The campers will also participate in arts and crafts that use the resources in nature to create beautiful pieces of art. Basic culinary skills and simple recipes will be taught to the campers to learn to make and be able to enjoy their tasty creations, including learning to cook outdoors. These activities will not only allow the campers to enjoy the outdoors and learn new activities, but will also teach leadership, team building, and social skills. The campers will learn how to work with peers to complete a task and have fun. Different activities will give each camper the opportunity to step forward and lead a group.  Our camp counselors consist of excellent county high school and college students who lead the campers in fun activities.

The camp was a huge success this year.  50 campers, 9 staff, and numbers of volunteers made this year’s camp the best yet!
