Trinidad Lake State Park offers summer camps to area children
TRINIDAD, Colo. – Registration is underway for the 2nd Annual Trinidad Lake State Park Summer Camp program.
The park will offer two weeks of camps for children ages 7-11 in its Junior Explorer Program.
The first camp is scheduled June 26-30 and it will include hiking, archery, pond studies and fishing. Campers will learn about plants and wildlife as well as archaeology and paleontology. They will learn how to read a map and compass, too.
Sessions during each week will teach outdoor survival and water safety as well as how to protect our ecosystem and team-building exercises.
The camps are a great opportunity for kids to learn about environmental stewardship and make new friends.
The camps run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day and cost $20 per child. A lunch is provided. Scholarships are available for low-income families.
The second week-long session is scheduled July 17-21.
Anyone interested in the first session should register no later than June 12 by calling the park at 719-846-6951. Hurry because space is limited.
