2018 Elk River Watershed Discovery Camp

Elk Watershed Discovery Camp 2018 is now officially open for registration at the College of the Rockies Fernie Campus! Check out this awesome week-long day camp filled with smiles, splashes and skills for youth aged 10-14! 3 weeks offered this summer!

Since 2014, the Elk River Alliance has run the Elk Watershed Discovery Camp for adventurous youth who are excited to learn in the Elk Watershed. Youth get their hands wet and feet muddy exploring mountains, marshes, forests and rivers. Activities include: hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, geocaching, canoeing, fishing, floating, wild yoga, water science and MORE.

In this camp, youth learn practical, hands-on skills and meet professionals who work in various environmental careers. Skills acquired during the camp include: water safety and river rescue; GPS mapping and computer modelling; assessing river and riparian health; thinking like a fish; reading mountain geology and glacial history.

In 2018 there are 3 camp week options: 1) July 9-13, 2) July 23-27 and 3) August 13-17. The cost is $325/week for each participant. Sign up at the College of the Rockies—Fernie campus, 342 3rd Ave. Contact Allie Ferguson from the Elk River Alliance for more information by phone (250) 423-9799 or e-mail allie@elkriveralliance.ca.
