LANGLEY - Officials with the Oklahoma Conservation Commission’s Blue Thumb program and the Grand River Dam Authority are teaming up once again for A Grand Adventure!
The stream and lake youth day camp will take place on from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m,, Thursday and Friday, June 16 and 17 and Thursday and Friday, July 21 and 22 at the GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center in Langley.
With each camp, two action-packed days will be filled with "all things water" for students 9 to 12 years old.
Campers can expect to tour the Pensacola Dam, zip across Grand Lake aboard the GRDA Eco-lab boat and learn how to reduce pollution. Activities range from seining for bugs and fish to building and launching their own miniature rafts.
During the two days, campers will learn the difference between monitoring a lake and a stream, learn how to check water clarity and better understand and protect life just below the surface of the water.
“When you take kids to a stream or lake and let them explore, they learn more than we think," explained Cheryl Cheadle, Blue Thumb State Coordinator. "We will give them the tools they need to explore the world under the water and to protect one of Oklahoma’s most precious natural resources, water."
The enrollment is $25 and includes a small net, lifejacket, t-shirt, lunch and snacks. Sessions are limited to 25 children.
