Camp Press Release

For Immediate Release February 23, 2015

High school students create NatSci Camp at Queens University of Charlotte, NC.

Local high school students create innovative 2015 summer camp on Queens University of Charlotte campus, these natural leaders are founders of the non profit E-Corps.  E-Corps believes there is a restorative power in nature, that replenishes our spirit, renews our bond with the great outdoors and causes us to come alive. These exceptional teens have spent the last summers diligently helping youth connect to nature and after a year of preparation have a new creation.

Is this the camp for your child? Are you concerned your child is suffering from what Richard Louv coined “Nature Deficit Disorder”?  Does your child feel science is a foreign element not an integral part of nature, the environment or life? Is your child detached from the natural environment set on viewing it via a screen?   Do you fear the skills of observation, imagination, and wonder are suppressed by commercialism?

The only cure is to shift the nature perspective, as the sustaining element of life with all scientific vastness and infinite wonders. This camp begins the journey to critical thinking, with STE(A)M* correlations and imaginative fun in nature.

Our NatSci Basic Training summer day camps adhere to the E-Corps mission and curriculum objectives.  E-Corps camp staff strives to make out of school time learning fun, engaging and a rewarding experience for each camper.  We respect and value the opportunity to share our love of science and nature to dispel fears and inspire curiosity.
