Earth Rangers learn advanced outdoor skills such as knot tying, using a compass, animal tracking, additional canoeing strokes, and camping. Weekly cookout meals, a one-day off-site canoe trip, and two campouts — one at Emily Oaks and one at another at a state park — are all part of the camp experience. Earth Rangers also have a responsibility to protect natural places, as well as learn about local ecosystems and how to live more harmoniously with the earth. Fee includes recreational swimming, field trips, cookout food, canoeing instruction, two campouts, and a canoe trip. No camp July 4.
