NGRREC℠ & College for Kids
NGRREC℠ offers summer programs for students through Lewis and Clark Community College’s College for Kids program. College for Kids is the perfect environment for students to discover new talents, expand their knowledge, and enjoy hands on learning. Summer programs are offered as classes by NGRREC and provide students with the opportunity to discover their water resources through interactive experiences such as water quality sampling, stream scavenger hunts, storm drain stenciling, migratory bird watching and much more.
College for Kids is an academic enrichment program for children of all ages - from pre-school through high school. More than 20,000 young people have participated in hands-on learning in math, science, creative arts, technology and languages since the program began in 1989.
Camp Waterschool (5-day camp)
Everywhere! We use it every day but have you ever stopped to think about where
it comes from? How much we have on the planet? In this camp, we will discover
and explore water using our local rivers as inspiration. Through
hands-on activities, arts and crafts, and outdoor adventures, campers will see
our local rivers in a whole new way. The week will include a visit to a working
lock and dam, stream walks, and will culminate with a canoe trip led by
experienced guides. By reflecting on their personal experiences with the river,
campers will appreciate how they can make positive differences in their
watershed and community.
River Connections (1-day camp)
Put your science
sleuth skills to work in this fun-filled day of exploration. We will learn
about our local waterways through hands-on activities and will use our senses
to experience rivers in a whole new way.
