Wild Roots: An Eco-Adventure Summer Camp For Girls
"Our Children no longer learn how to read the great book of Nature from their own direct experience, or how to interact creatively with the seasonal transformations of the planet. They seldom learn where their water come from or where it goes. We no longer coordinate our human celebration with the great liturgy of the heavens." - Wendell Berry
Wild Roots Camp was born from a desire to cultivate a love of the outdoors in young Kentucky girls.
Wild Roots is an overnight adventure and nature camp in Kentucky for girls age 10-16
Our vision is to instill environmental responsibility and awareness through outdoor adventure activities and ecologically based service learning .
The girls will experience a new outdoor adventure each day but will always spend a portion of their day working on a week long community service project. This years camp is taking place in the Red River Gorge and the girls will get the opportunity to assist with the recently completed Red River Watershed Plan. They will perform a creek clean up on the Middle fork of the Red River and install a riparian zone to ensure to further assist the creeks health in the future.
