The Coosa River Basin Initiative and the Rome/Floyd ECO River Education Center will hold its final camp of the summer next month.
The camps will be held during the week of july 14-18 for children in grades 6-8.
“Any child that likes getting wet and dirty in nature will love this camp,” said Amos Tuck, CRBI program coordinator and riverkeeper, who will lead the camps along with ECO Center Director Ben Winkelman.
The camp, which will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, costs $200 per camper.
During the week, Tuck and Winkelman will guide campers through Floyd County's wild places from the county’s rivers and streams to its mountains and ridges, incorporating educational experiences into each adventure.
Students will hike up mountains, paddle canoes and kayaks down rivers and snorkel in creeks among other activities.
