(Zanesville, Ohio) – Disappointed about having to cancel its annual summer camp due to COVID-19, an area summer camp is taking the experience virtual.
“Were we going to leave you hanging that week with nothing to do but wish you were at camp? No way,” officials stated in an email blast to previous campers. The camp announced a week of virtual learning opportunities designed to relieve stress during a challenging time and “bring it back to the good ol’ outdoors…and the forest and wildlife in it.”
Starting Sunday, June 7th, at 2 p.m. and ending at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 12, the camp announced plans to post videos created by Camp Canopy’s directors, instructors, and a few special guests to the organization’s Facebook page (@CampCanopy). Videos will be posted at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 7 p.m.
“We will be teaching about tree ID, mammal pelts and skulls, silviculture, bats, turning trees into logs, birds, frogs, invasive species, and MORE,” they added. The full schedule can be found here.
Those interested are also encouraged to join the camp LIVE on Facebook at 10 a.m. each day, starting Monday, for a preview of the day’s content.
