2013 Camp Musky
Summer Day Camp Programs
Camp Musky is an educational and fun day camp for kids ages 6 - 12+ years old. It offers an outdoor learning experience and hands-on, river-based programs described below. MWA's primary mission is education and awareness. We believe that a community that is fully aware of the importance and vulnerability of its natural resources is a community that will actively support efforts to ensure environmental quality.

July 8-12, 2013, (Monday - Friday, 9am-1pm) Half Day
Campers will explore nature through storytelling, cooperative play, and creative art and crafting projects designed to deepen their connection with nature. Each morning, children will depart on an exciting journey exploring the river and its surroundings while collecting and recording treasures they find along their way. They will use their collections along with various artistic mediums, paints, beads and clay to create and express the different aspects of life on the River. While encountering all of the things that can be seen, and even some things that can’t be seen, campers will develop a nature journal and discover ways of creating a record of what their senses experience.
This team will explore the connections between the earth’s eco-systems, and the microcosms within those ecosystems. They will be exposed to practices of sustainability and environmental ethics as well as practices in classification of insects, birds, flowers and trees. Explorations of the river and our path to developing a deep, lasting connection with our bio-region will be documented in a nature journal.
Our older campers will learn that, for humans to live sustainably, we need to use the Earth’s resources at a rate at which they can be replenished. Rangers will develop an appreciation for basic components necessary for sustainability including use of water, shelter, and food. Rangers will learn how each habitat explored provides these necessities for the creatures it supports. Each day, there will be an exploration of the Musconetcong River and an in-depth investigation of stream and field life in the Musconetcong Watershed.
