CLIMATE CAMP

We had a great time with our 2017 Camps, information about 2018 Camps will be posted soon!

Climate Camp is one of our signature programs. Our Camps — both day camps and weeklong camps — provide the opportunity for young people, ages 7 on up to dig deep on climate change and climate solutions. Every camp is different, but we always mix science, art, nature connection, service-learning and civic action.

Check out this short video for a description of Climate Camp.

Climate Camp is a collaboration between Youth Power Indiana, Peace Learning Center and HEART, and hosted at the Peace Learning Center in Eagle Creek Park, and is open to 2nd graders through 11th graders!

Here's a story the Indianapolis Star did about Camp, summer, 2016.

We are the only organization combining climate stewardship with civic action. In the process, we incorporate humane education practices while emphasizing racial and social justice issues, along with conflict resolution principles. Plus, we go on field trips (Eskenazi SkyFarm, Indy Urban Acres, Freewheelin' Community Bikes, Fruit Loop Acres, etc.) and have a lot of fun!
