ECOkids environmental camps by Plant A Tree Today (PATT)
ECOKids Camp (age 6-11years)
As part of their environmental education program, Plant a Tree Today Foundation holds an environmental camp during school holidays and weekends called ECOkids.
ECOkids is a week long camp run by PATT staff in the hopes of teaching children about environmental issues. Our hope is that they grow more aware of environmental issues and share what they learn with you and their parents. ECOkids’ goal, in addition to education, is to generate excitement about the nature around us and to have fun in doing so. Visits include zoos, community forests, nature reserves, museums, organic farms, recycling plants, and more! The camp is open to children aged 6-11 years and supervised by professionals at 1:5 adult/child ratio.
Each camp in 2011 will feature a theme around which the activities and learning will focus. Animals, ecosystems, seas and oceans, and conservation are some of the themes. Mangrove planting at Bangpu Nature Reserve and tree planting at Phra Pra Daeng Community Forest will be included in every camp. PATT feels that tree planting is a strong way to teach your students about environmental protection, biodiversity, and the ecosystem. Also, slopping through the mangrove mud and digging in the dirt is a fun experience your students will certainly remember.
Camps run from Monday to Friday. A convenient meeting place will be determined for each camp and this is where parents can drop off their eco-kids in the mornings, between 08.00 and 09.00, and meet the PATT leaders. The group will then use private transport to the activity within or just outside of Bangkok. Pickup at the meeting place will be at 16.00 each afternoon.
Dates: 20th - 24th June
11th - 15 July
8th -12th August
Camp Fee: Monday to Wednesday (3 day camp) -4,000 baht
Monday to Friday ( 5 day camp) -6,500 baht
Includes transport, activity fee, PATT tee-shirt, cap, ECOkids handbook, lunch, drink, and snacks
Please find attached our flyer announcing the ECOkids camps and our most recent newsletter. I would like to ask whether your school might place our ECOkids flyer and information on your school bulletin board? This would be a great help if you were to mention ECOkids to your students and their parents. If you are interested, registration forms are available on our website and do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the camps, dates, or activities. PATT looks forward to creating new ECOwarriors!
Thank you and best regards,
