Lake Keepers Camp

Citizens’ Association of Liberty Lakes (CALL) has offered a week-long summer camp for children grades 3-5 since 2006 to explore lake science through games, talks, and hands-on activities. We emphasize subjects such as erosion, the watershed, fish and other wildlife who live in and around the lake, and invasive plants. Camp will take place August 1-5, 2022. Applications are available below.

History of Lake Keepers Camp:

Each summer since 2006, typically the 1st week in August, CALL offers a week-long "Lake Keepers Camp" for area youth who have completed the 3rd, 4th or 5th grade. The children learn about our lakes and watershed ecology. The camp is free and runs from 9 am to noon each day, Monday through Friday. Sign ups begin mid May. The program is led by colunteers from CALL, staff from DEP, and other educators.

Many interesting topics are covered at camp, but in a fun way, with games and activities the children will enjoy. As examples, students learn how a watershed is created and how to keep our lakes clean by preventing non-point source pollution. They also experience the "Hooked on Fishing" programs and enjoy an informative boat trip on the last day of camp. To date, the program has served approximately 100 area youth, some of whom have attended more than once.
