Camp Casper 2018 – People on the Land

June 18 @ 8:30 am - 11:45 am

JDCF, in partnership with the Galena ARC, will once again host Camp Casper, an outdoor day camp for children ages 9 to 13, at JDCF’s Casper Bluff Land & Water Reserve. This year’s theme is People on the Land. People have lived, worked and played on the land that now makes up Jo Daviess County for over 12,000 years. Campers will take a journey through time to explore the lives of the Native Americans who first inhabited this land, the settlers who migrated in search of resources and opportunity, and those who live on and work the land as we know it today.

The camp will take place from 8:30 AM – 11:45 AM on June 18, 20, 21 and 22. It will run until 2:00 PM on June 19th for a field trip.

To register, contact the Galena ARC at (815) 777-2248 or visit www.galenaarc.org/camp-casper.

Camp Casper 2018 is generously sponsored by Illinois Bank & Trust and Chestnut Mountain Resort.
