Eco Kids Rainforest Adventure
Chaa Creek Summer Camp
July 21 -29, 2012Looking for a special event for your 8-13 year old this summer?
Chaa Creek is offering a week long summer camp scholarship program for Belize's resident school children in order to educate them about biodiversity, natural resource conservation, the ancient Maya, traditional healing, and the three "R's" Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
The program aims to instill memorable values that will have an impact on the way children conduct their lives, their relationship with our fragile Earth, and the sustainable development of our future.
Some of our guided educational activities include: Hiking to ancient Maya sites where we will perform archaeological excavations, Horseback Riding through Jungle Trails while studying the medicinal flora within our 365-acre private reserve, Song writing and talent show sessions, Hands-on sustainable organic farming techniques, and Supervised water activities.8 Nights/9 Days all inclusive
