Studies show exposure to nature helps improve attention, promote prosocial behaviors, reduce stress, and bolster overall mental and physical wellbeing in children.
ECO CAMP takes this nature-based approach supporting student emotional growth and cognitive development. Camps are led by counselors and provide a safe space for children to engage with nature, via group activities, in a tech-free and therapeutic way. Currently Eco-Camp is provided for middle school aged students.
This program was a huge success when piloted in April 2022 during Spring Break. The program continued through a partnership with the Town of Danville Summer Recreation camps in Summer 2022. In 2023, DCC’s therapists worked with Kids Country Summer camps at various school sites throughout the summer.
UPCOMING DATES TBD
Eco Camp was a huge success!
