$10 Donation to Environmental Volunteers

$10 Donation to Environmental Volunteers

The Issue: Outdoor Camps Increase Conservation Skills

Environmental education is important. Especially in an age when children spend much of their days indoors with video games and TVs. Outdoor camps serve not only as bridges that connect children to nature, but also encourage them to engage with their peers. And the numbers speak in their favor: youth who participate in outdoor science camps demonstrate a 27% increase in their conflict resolution skills, mastery of science concepts, and concern for conservation, according to a 2005 study from American Institute for Research. Even 6–10 weeks after their participation, youth were observed to recycle more at home and engage in positive environmental behaviors.

The Campaign: Sending Underserved Youth to Camp

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Environmental Volunteers to promote environmental stewardship and positive social engagement. For every $500 raised, Environmental Volunteers can send one underserved youth in grades 1–8 on a weeklong day camp, including transportation, museum and park entrance fees, and kayak rentals. Erin Craig, former board member and volunteer, will match donations up to $3,000.

During camps, youth—51% of whom are from low-income families in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Mountain View, or Redwood City—explore local landscapes, play outdoors, and express themselves through art projects. Last summer, campers climbed oak trees and explored the creek at Bol Park, collecting and releasing water striders and tadpoles.
