Earth Keepers

Earth Keepers expands on Oneness-Family's environmental awareness and appreciation curriculum. Engaging lessons combined with daily field trips to national and state parks, beaches, lakes, and preservation sites make this one of the most fun and meaningful camp experiences in the area for students in first through rising fifth grade. 

In the past, Earth Keepers have trekked the nature trails of Lake Needwood, Great Falls, Flag Pond, Calvert Cliffs, Merrimac Farm, and Sandy Point State Park to name a few. Campers enjoy regular trips to local lakes, waterholes, pools and beaches to cool off, as well as special trips to indoor rock-climbing or jumping facilities. The Earth Keepers also draw pictures, write stories and take meditative moments to reflect on the needs and beauty of the earth. 

The camp day begins with arrival from 8:30-9:00 am, and campers will depart on the bus promptly at 9:00. The camp day ends at 3:00 pm, with opportunities for before and after care for campers needing extended hours.
