Eco Camp

A Free Ecology Day Camp for Children

Last week of July, 9:30 am to 3:30 pm

Registration | Volunteer | Donate

Enroll your children, ages 5-12, for a free week-long day camp with the goal of learning how to be ecologically friendly. Children who are 5 years old will be accepted if they will be in First Grade in August. EcoCamp takes place from Monday to Friday.

Daily themes will explore the earth’s traditional basic elements: Earth, Air, Water, Fire and Spirit. Activities galore including scientific demonstrations, games, songs, art/crafts, stories, nature activities, scavenger hunts, green technology, growing food, recycling and much MORE, including a free camp tee-shirt.

Teens 13 and over can register as Teen Counselors. To volunteer your teen as a counselor, contact our Director of Religious Education at dre@aluuc.org.

Campers (and families) are invited to participate in a Saturday action in Springfield and a Sunday graduation program and celebration at ALUUC, which will be the weekend after camp.
