In addition to our nature lessons, we will take time to host a audio described virtual camp hike with the sights and sounds of EHC that will likely include some exciting updates on the rebuild of camp.

Hoby and some of his naturalist friends will be joining the conversation to help us learn more about the science of EHC and help us all gain a deeper connection to nature. Those LightHouse students that are interested in joining us and that sign-up by Friday, November 12th will get a package in the mail filled with some program supplies and nature artifacts from camp that can help enhance your program experience.
