The Partnership for Onondaga Creek (POC) is recruiting 11 to 14 year-olds for its Young Eco-‘Cuse Explorer Program (YECE). This year-long program starts with a team-building session on a Saturday in February and runs until November. In January, our YECE program pre-selects one Saturday a month. The Partnership is running this program in collaboration with the Onondaga Earth Corps (OEC) and the Onondaga Environmental Institute. The program is designed for ten children. .
This program, which includes a state-run week-long summer camp in the Adirondacks, asks for a commitment from both the parent(s) and child. Since the ten youth will be part of a team, we require 100% attendance for pre-selected Saturdays.
When you register your child, you will:
- Fill out a commitment form and two permission forms for this year-long environmental education program,
- pay $50 to the Partnership for Onondaga Creek, and
- fill out a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) application for summer camp.
Registering your child for the year-long Eco-‘Cuse Explorer program commits them to attending all the Saturday activities and the week-long DEC summer camp.
