Happy Dancing Turtle
2020 Eco Camps
Happy Dancing Turtle's Eco Camp provides a unique experience that combines environmental education and summer camp. We believe that a passion for stewardship begins with cultivating a love of nature and being outdoors. We'll engage campers in a variety of lessons, activities, games, stories, crafts, outdoor experiences and play, and more, as we learn how to be a responsible caretaker of our local environments!
Our theme for camp this year is Freshwater Friends, a group of Minnesota’s aquatic critters with one mission: to protect Minnesota’s lakes and rivers! Each age group will have their own mascot to help them become a Friend to the Planet. Activities will vary by age, but campers will have a chance to:
Turn trash into treasure as we get crafty by reusing common household items
Learn about & create animal habitats
Dive into predator-prey relationships in the food web through various games of tag
Discover the wonders of animal adaptations with hide-and-seek games of camouflage, goofy dress-up costumes, and creative art activities
Get our hands dirty as we learn about plants through gardening and forest exploration
Go on daily nature walks to observe the flora & fauna of the area
Gain basic outdoors skills through activities like fort-building and outdoor navigation
Build our observation skills through interactive games, challenges, & writing activities
Explore how to conserve our resources through interactive lessons, discussions, & science experiments on energy, water, pollution, and consumer choices.
Most importantly, have fun while enjoying the great outdoors!
