Happy Dancing Turtle hosted its annual week-long Eco Camps starting in mid-June with the last week-long session Aug. 19-23.

Each week-long session was dedicated to a specific age group ranging to grade 6. Kids did crafts, played games, took field trips and learned many life skills all disguised as fun.

Kids were treated to field trips to B & B Goat Goods, got to see and learn about beekeeping, gardening and wilderness orienteering and everyone got to walk away with handmade crafts. Kids even got to learn about healthy eating in the best way imaginable, by sampling!

This camp is dedicated to teaching children about the environment and sustainability. Children ages 4 and older are invited. The price this year ranged from $35 to $75.
