Angostura Recreation Area 0ffers Summer Nature Camp for kidsx
HOT SPRINGS, S.D. – Angostura Recreation Area is hosting a nature day camp for kids ages 7-12 on Wednesday, June 18. June has been proclaimed Great Outdoors Month by Governor Rounds, and the camp is a great opportunity for kids to explore the surrounding recreation area and focus on the outdoors.
The theme of the June 18 day camp is “Be a weather watcher.” “The kids will learn about different weather patterns, barometric pressure, humidity, and how these things come into play when predicting our weather,” said Willy Collignon, park manager. The camp will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
While the camp is geared for kids ages 7-12, younger children may attend if accompanied by an adult. Kids are reminded to wear clothing appropriate for the weather and shoes comfortable for walking. Sandals are not appropriate. No snacks or refreshments will be provided, but kids are welcome to bring their own.
Angostura Recreation Area will also be hosting nature day camps for kids in July and August. On July 16, kids will become Geology Detectives, and on August 20, they can learn animal tracking techniques.
Reservations are required for the camps and can be made by calling Angostura Recreation Area at 605-745-6996 or by email at Angostura [at] state [dot] sd [dot] us. There is no fee for the camp; however a park entrance license is required.
