Nature & Environment Day Camp 2022
The Nature and Environment Day Camp is centered at Camp Herms in El Cerrito and nearby East Bay Regional Park lands. A crew of up to 12 Scouts will investigate the Wildcat Creek watershed and see for themselves how biotic and abiotic forces shape and change the watershed’s ecology. This is an in-depth and hands-on way to learn from expert University of California instructors how ecological science is done. Scouts will study insects, birds, plants, animals, water courses, microclimates, soils and so much more.
Participants can complete the requirements for the Nature, Soil and Water Conservation, Fish and Wildlife Management, and the Environmental Science merit badges. Scouts with the Citizenship in the World merit badge may earn the World Scout Conservation Badge. Motivated Scouts may earn the Scout Naturalist Award.
Participants will be responsible for their own meals. Cost: $350/Scout. Merit badge work may be completed with approved counselors from 3-5:00 M-F with a $50/week fee.
