Did your child love the experience at CEED’s Summer Nature Experience or other nature camps? Here is an opportunity for your 8th through 12th grader to take this experience to the next level. CEED is helping develop future scientists and conservationists by launching the Leadership program, where children will start by team building and immersing themselves in nature and the farm (depending on the week) and then they will work on providing activities and experiences for our younger nature enthusiasts in our Summer Nature Experience. The program is either a 2-week program at CEED and at Mama Farm, the organic farm next door, from August 2-August 13, 3-week program at Post Morrow Foundation from July 12- July 30, or register for all 5 weeks of leadership fun from July 12- August 13!
At Post Morrow CEED’s leadership trainees will be team building, exploring, and learning, whether seining in the bay, studying the Beaverdam Creek ecosystem, or identifying trees on our nature trails for part of the time. They will also be leading CEED’s younger participants on hikes, performing science activities, and explorations of the marine environment and more. At Mama Farm and CEED, the leadership trainees will be working with farming and livestock and also exploring nature in the Dennis Puleston Preserve and CEED grounds. When they are ready, the leadership training participants will share their knowledge with the younger groups.
The sessions will run from 8:45-3:45 Monday through Friday and cost $300 per week (although participants must make the full 2-week or 3-week commitment.) All participants will receive an Educator in Training / Leadership certificate. This is a great way to gain experience in leadership for future careers in science or education.
Session 1 July 12-July 30 (3 weeks) at Post Morrow Cost $900
Session 2 August 2 - August 13 (2 weeks) at Mama Farm and CEED Cost $600
Register for both Sessions July 12- August 13 Cost $1,350
