Camp Wa-Ri-Ki to Partner with
NASA’s GLOBE Program
Val Schaffroth, President, Board of Directors has announced Camp Wa-Ri-Ki will be partnering with NASA sponsored GLOBE program. GLOBE, the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment program, is a worldwide program that brings together students, teachers, scientists and citizens to promote science and learning about the environment. Through a hands-on approach to inquiry, participants are encouraged to engage in local investigations that cover five core fields: atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, soil (pedosphere), and Earth as a system.
“Partnering with the GLOBE program is a natural fit for us,” said Schaffroth. “GLOBE’s five core fields addresses our goal of offering more STEM and STEAM outdoor education opportunities. Additionally, blending our four core programs areas: Nature-based Learning; Leadership and Personal Development; Fun, Exploration and Adventure and Outdoor Skills with the GLOBE program ensures children, youth, adults and families will all find a way to engage in the outdoors at Camp Wa-Ri-Ki.” You can read Camp Wa-Ri-Ki’s press statement here.
