Shadow Mountain Day Camp
EarthWise Learning Inc.
Summer day camp for kids 9 to 12 years old!
Let your kids explore, create, and have fun with us in the beautiful Bosque of the Rio Ojo Caliente. Our camp is the perfect addition to your child's summer.
EarthWise Learning is a not for profit organization that wants to make a difference in the lives of Espanola area youth.
Our mission is to foster, nurture, and encourage people of all ages to develop and sustain a lasting and fulfilling relationship with the natural world... and what better group to begin with than children, and what better place then right here! Kids share a natural curiosity about the world they inhabit, and should be encouraged to explore. Our activities are aimed at helping them learn about how to express this innate energy in positive ways that they can take home and apply to their lives immediately.
The camp will take place 15 minutes north of Espanola. Parents will drop their children off at the gate each morning and pick them up each afternoon. We provide a healthy and yummy lunch and nutritious snacks. Check out our two day option.
Contact us in writing at PO Box 1191, Espanola, 87532 or find out more info and even reserve a space for your child on line at: www.earthwiselearning.org or speak with us at 505-795-2788.
