Bee Friendly Arts Camp Buzz

The camp is hosted by Encore! County Seat Theater, Reach Mentoring and Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community.

It is for those ages 10 to 15 and will use arts-based, service-learning approach through a student-led design process for creating curriculum and during the camp itself. The camp's goal is to help students see that they can help change the world with their creativity.

The REACH mentoring group and Carlton County 4-H are partnering to prepare a Youth Advisory Board to work as camp counselors at the camp.

Dylan Kelly, the 4-H Youth Development Extension Educator for Carlton County, will be conducting a training series for REACH's Youth Advisory Board using iNaturalist and Seek by iNaturalist apps, developing a comic book on pollinators, and creating a lesson plan using 4-H's Experimental Cycle.

Once trained, the REACH board will practice lesson plans and apply them during the Cloquet Forestry Center's Forestry Adventure Camps in July. Youth Board members will also practice lesson on pollinators to prepare as camp counselors for Bee Friendly Arts Camp.

Supporting pollinators is a positive expression of our region's shared concern for each other and the environment.
