Responding to COVID-19

ELC will not offer traditional summer camps in 2020. We were hoping to offer camps in July and August but in light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases we decided we did not want to potentially increase transmission of this virus.  Although we are disappointed that we cannot offer traditional camp experiences, our highly skilled and dynamic environmental educators have been hard at work creating exciting family activities for you to enjoy! 

The health and safety of our community has been, and will continue to be, our primary focus. These programs will allow us to draw on our strengths to deliver an even greater impact - balancing outdoor activity, fun, learning and protection of health.


We thank you for your patience and understanding as we do our best to safely navigate this new realm while continuing to provide our community with meaningful and exciting environmental education activities and programs.
