Check in: 8:30
Program: 9:00-12:00 pm.
Ages 5 and up welcome, those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Start by making your own Earth Day Passport and collect stamps though out the day at different stations. Together, we will get our hands dirty with a service project to spruce of our landscape in support of the pollinators of our neighborhood. On a hike, we will visit and learn about some interesting nearby landmarks of the Historic Fort Snelling. Then we will return to Base Camp's TeamBuilding Center for more fun – make your own seed bombs, try out archery or rock climbing and even taste some honey from different types of bees!
Join our Base Camp Youth Advisory Committee in learning about Leadership and the Environment. We’ll be trying out the Leadership Portal and meeting students and Scouts who are putting their leadership skills in action for the planet! Meet and learn from Caleb, a Scout who owns and Island on the Mississippi, and who raises rabbits and uses them to teach STEM education (he’ll have some rabbits along too!). There will be some other cool guests as well.
