2016 End of Year Appeal

It’s time to think about water. Our Southeastern streams dried up during this drought and many communities were on severe water restrictions. Our mountains burned. We are so thankful for these first rainy days in months, but our need to protect our water will never end. Will you help? Read more

Working in Belize

This started out as an article for the website and was lost in the great digital shuffle – but we found it and it’s making in appearance. This happened about a year ago and was written by Berry Shultz. There have been more trips since – but this captures what we are doing in Belize:

I went to Belize this summer to fill in for Mary Beth at her Kids 4 Clean Water camp in San Mateo. I anticipated an eye opening experience having traveled in developing countries in the recent past. However nothing could have prepared me for this “eye opening” experience. The golf cart bumped over the pitted “road” into San Mateo and the panorama that is life there spread in front of me and unbidden tears began streaming down my face. My skin felt too sensitive to touch, my scalp was tingling uncomfortably and I could not form words.

Summer Camp – Kids 4 Clean Water – Session 5

Science camp in Chattanooga for young people ages 8 through 12 where we have fun in the water as we learn about our resources

When you enroll in CaribbeanSEA Summer Camp, expect to learn!

We spend much of our time outdoors.  Our goal is to get the kids out  in watersheds and creeks every day.  We play in the streams, hike, make and race boats and sometimes we canoe.

Our camps emphasize science so we do things like collect samples of aquatic life from streams and see what they mean in terms of water quality. We have had TVA show us their fish shocking boat and teach us about all the different kinds of fish.  We do dye tracer studies at some sites to see how contaminants propagate in a stream.

We also have fun with arts and crafts and much much more.  Look at our pictures on our Caribbean Student Environmental Alliance Facebook page!!

Ages:

Young people ages 8 through 12

Hours:

Every day from 9 am to 4 pm  EXCEPT Fridays 9 am to 2 pm.  Before and after care is available.

Cost:

$150/week
