Back to Earth 2006 Can't Post

On April 22, will be joining all environmentally-conscious people in celebrating the 36th Anniversary of Earth Day. lists over 11,000 traditional camps where children and counselors can get away for the summer or part of it to form new friendships and bond with the great outdoors.

Traditional camps depend on offering a natural summer environment for kids. Its no secret why so many traditional camps depend on a simple, yet effective solution for a summer showcase

1. Woodlands with clearings for cabins, land sports (especially a baseball diamond and a basketball court), recreation center, dining hall, religious service space; all connected by paths.

2. Water lakes, rivers, oceans is a central theme for almost all traditional summer camps, comprised of:
  • Waterfront for swimming, regattas, and beach activities
  • Canoe docks
  • Sailing docks
  • Waterskiing docks
  • Surf and Windsurf areas
  • Etc . . .
3. Air fresh and clean with bright sun. Rainy days too.

Adventure camps depend even more heavily on Nature; lists 2,200 of them. Backpacking, canoeing, farming, rock climbing, wilderness, and others, are defined by Nature and the environment.

Nature is the great escape and the mainstay of most summer camps. Thats why its important to remember Earth Day 2006: April 22.

Check out Earthday Network, a website dedicated to year-round environmental concerns with information to get involved, and help conserve.
