First Time Campers Program: Spring 2019 (April 5 – 6)
April 5 @ 8:00 am – April 6 @ 5:00 pm
Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, in conjunction with the Friends of Wolf Trap (FOWT) and Scouts BSA Troop 55 (Great Falls, VA) sponsors a camp out for Fairfax County 5th & 6th graders in the spring and fall each year. The campout helps campers learn new skills, demonstrate that outdoor activities can be fun, teaches them about different aspects of nature and fosters a meaningful connection to the natural world.
This is an opportunity for Fairfax Master Naturalists to help youth learn to become comfortable with the outdoors, have fun and build confidence, while not venturing too far from home. This is also a great way for parents to learn to become more comfortable that their child can thrive independently.
Fairfax Master Naturalists should refer to Project E248 in the Service Catalog for additional information on the program and participation requirements.
