We partner with the Thorne Nature Experience to support a youth summer camp that deepens children’s relationships with the outdoors.
Alongside our partner, Thorne Nature Experience, you will learn about the role of hands-on, place-based, environmental education as a means to foster environmental stewardship through an emotional connection to nature. This program will allow take you to the beautiful outdoor setting of Boulder, Colorado where you will enable all young children, regardless of race, ethnicity, or family income, to connect with nature.
While in Boulder you will support Thorne’s Summer Camp Program which gives youth from 3-15 the chance to explore nature through engaging learning experiences. As a teaching assistant, you will actively assist in the education of students about the wonders of the natural world through joyful, hands-on, field-based exploration. You will also have the opportunity to learn about other organizations providing youth and families with access to nature and the outdoors as a means of fostering environmental stewardship.
