Guestbook Nature goes hand in hand with these children
To start off,
Camp Centennial is where I worked as a day camp counsellor teaching children from age 4 to 14 how to love nature and treat the environment with respect. This vision is valued very much at Centennial and I think its important for our young citizens to understand that our actions are paired with damaging consequences. All while enjoying the outdoors, we would demonstrate how to use less and be creative with what we have without using or producing big amounts of waste. Encouraging the kids to pick up their own garbage after snack, turning off taps if not being used, having fun with nature scavenger hunts, building forts with dead trees, cooking over a fire, etc. Moreover, I think its important for us to teach this generation to live sustainably without using notorious amounts of energy and producing toxic waste that is destroying our planet.
