River Ranger 2015 In The River Web

Summer Camps 2015

Yes, learning can be a lot of fun!

The River Rangers and River Players camps we run with the Shenandoah Parks and Recreation Department were a big hit again this year.

We had 27 campers in the younger River Players and 20 in the River Rangers.

Both groups had direct experiences with the North Fork as well as other adventures. For example, the Rangers checked out the river at the Meems Bottom covered bridge, toured Shenandoah Caverns, kayaked with Route 11 Outfitters, and learned about turtle research.

The younger Players sorted through aquatic macroinvertebrates (“river bugs”), built “fairie houses,” and got a lot more comfortable playing and learning in nature. The highly qualified instructors–all public school teachers–did a great job, giving all the youngsters a chance to see how fascinating and fun nature exploration can be.
