Montgomery County Conservation and ISU Extension and Outreach Montgomery County have teamed up to host three different day camps for youth in Montgomery County this summer.
Each day camp will be offered twice, except for Reduce, Renew, Recycle, and Reuse. It will only be offered once. Registration fee is $20 per camp. Registration includes snacks, supplies and insurance. Youth are responsible for bringing a lunch. Details about each camp are as follows:
 Reduce, Renew, Recycle and Reuse be held on June 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Anderson Conservation Center. This camp is open to all youth who have completed fourth, fifth and sixth grades. Youth will explore the world of conservation through fun activities, crafts and games.
Blast from the Past camp will be held on June 18 and June 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Anderson Conservation Center. This camp is open to all youth who have completed second and third grade.
Children will take a step back in time to build their own fun through the day camp. They will have a full day of crafting, creating, building and imagining what may be different if they went back to a time without screens.
Blowing in the Wind will be held on June 25 and June 27 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Anderson Conservation Center.
