The Essex County Environmental Center in Roseland is offering summer camp programs for kids that are all about nature. And they run in the afternoon, which makes them an option after swim team and summer music get out.
The camp for kids in grades 1 and 2 runs from July 19 to 30, from 1 to 4 p.m. For grades 3 and 4, the camp is August 2 to 13, 1 to 5 p.m. And with either age group, you can sign up for one week or two. To register or get more information, call the Environmental Center at 973-228-8776. Scholarships are available for families in need through the Bill Brach Scholarship Fund; contact the New Jersey Audubon Society at 973-226-6082.
