Limited Spots Still Available for April 22 – 26 Camp
Lakes Region Rotary Club of Laconia recently donated $1,000 to support the work and mission of Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center. The funds will be used to sponsor WildQuest Spring Camp, a week-long day camp held during New Hampshire school vacation week in April.
“Our club recognizes Prescott Farm as a community asset and we are happy to give back through our service and financial support,” Lakes Region Rotary club president Ben Wilson said.
Prescott Farm hosts the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Program and in turn, participants from five area schools put their leadership skills to work through participation in three service projects at the farm every spring.
“It’s a great way to help teach the principles of leadership and service to the next generation,” Wilson said. “Sponsoring WildQuest Spring Camp at Prescott Farm is another way that we hope to contribute to a strong tomorrow through youth enrichment at Prescott Farm.”
WildQuest camps are nature-based and emphasize learning and exploration of the natural world. Camps are underway for school vacation weeks in February and April as well as for nine weeks in the summer. As winter turns to spring, campers and counselors tune into the many new and exciting changes that come with it. Spring Camp activities include garden projects, ponding, hiking, nature crafts, and bird watching.
Support from business partners and donors like Lakes Region Rotary help make it possible.
“We are so grateful for their generous support of our programs and for their service work at Prescott Farm over the years,” Executive Director Jude Hamel said. “The club and its members demonstrate through action the meaning of the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self.’ They really contribute to a thriving Lakes Region community by assisting programs that help make lives better for children and families.”
