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.

Who: Kids going into 5th-7th grade 

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 40 spaces available!
