Campers will embark on a fun learning adventure exploring our unique shrub steppe! This exciting outdoor camp gives middle schoolers (5th-8th grades) a more in depth look at this unique ecosystem while also building friendship and memories amongst the sagebrush.
Guided by experts in the shrub steppe, camp goers will embark on exciting nature hikes, train with wildland firefighters, learn about how to identify and build a fire adapted community, and so much more!
Near a pristine chain of lakes, freshwater marshes, sagebrush habitat, and magnificent basalt rock formations, Camp Delany at Sun Lakes- Dry Falls is an ideal location to learn about this beautiful ecosystem. This desert oasis is located in the Grand Coulee area of the Columbia Basin, 7 miles southwest of Coulee City and the Grand Coulee Dam.
Following STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathmatics) campers will learn to utilize several different tools and techniques that are commonly used by professionals that work within the ecosystem. They will also create art projects that help build an understanding of the unique beauty that is the shrub steppe. Act fast, this camp only has 50 spaces available!
