Looking for an affordable, fun, educational, award winning summer camp experience for your grade school aged child? ENOR Environmental Discovery Camp might be just the program. This day camp is sponsored by Jefferson County. The curriculum was developed in conjunction with Colorado State University. ENOR stands for Eagle’s Nest Owl’s Roost.
It’s a low-tech, environment-centered program that will get your children out in nature under the care of caring, trained educators to experience and engage in all the beauty that Colorado has to offer. And it’s affordable at $195 per week.
ENOR’s focus is environmental education and youth development rather than recreation. Each day the curriculum highlights unique environmental and social themes that guide learning. Science, math, history, drama, art, and teamwork are woven into the activities to meet the diverse interests of the young learners.
To encourage healthy lifestyles, active engagement with the outdoors, and perseverance through challenge, the camp day includes hiking in local parks and open spaces. Campers are transported by Jeffco Public School buses to unique locations each day.
CARE: Campers are assigned to one caring educator for the week. This gives campers the opportunity to bond with their leader and peers, creating a pathway to comfort and safety, supporting an environment of learning.
There is still limited availability for fourth and fifth graders: June 18 to 22, June 25 to 29 and July 16 to 20; and for sixth graders: June 11 to 15, June 18 to 22, June 25 to 29 and July 9 to 13. It’s even licensed as a day care provider by the State of Colorado.
