Urban Adventures Summer Day Camp
The 2012 Urban Adventures Summer Camp was a Great Success!
In 2011, Groundwork Lawrence partnered with Mass Audobon to launch an Environmental Education Summer Program for ages 7-12. The camp was a great success, and is now in its second year. Our previous Summer Stewards program has been wrapped into the Urban Adventures Program.
The Urban Adventures Summer Program is a nature-based day camp right in the heart of Lawrence! Our fun summer program is designed to give children the experience and adventure of an authentic nature camp. Each week features a unique theme, tailored for every age group. And, each day is packed with outdoor exploration, science activities, arts & crafts, games, and songs!
