Casper College is hosting a field science camp for elementary students currently in the fourth or fifth grade. The camp will run June 17-21 from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Twenty spots are available for the five-day field science camp. According to organizer Jessie Anderson, the camp will provide field experience for students interested in science and nature. Students will participate in nature field trips to learn about the local plants, animals, rocks, and fossils. Students will visit Edness Kimball Wilkins State Park, the Alcova and Pathfinder area, Casper Mountain, and Bates Creek.

“In today’s world of so many electronic distractions and so little science taught in early elementary school, it is important to introduce children to nature,” said Anderson, adding, “Our goal is to get children interested in science while giving them a more thorough understanding of their natural world.”

The registration deadline is May 31, and the $120 tuition per student is due June 14. The camp is limited to 20 students, with others placed on a waiting list. A limited number of scholarships are available. Vans will leave from and return to the Casper College campus each day. Additional information and the registration form can be found here.
