Overview: This seven-day program is based on the principles of the environmental organization Plastic Tides (www.plastictides.org). We combine adventure and science through SUP research expeditions to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Our research efforts are paired with a professional media strategy to inform public opinion and effect positive social change. In this program students become Plastic Tides ambassadors during a weeklong experiential learning opportunity as they gain the skills necessary for SUP based conservation and develop expedition-planning skills to design their own trip. Following the program students are given the opportunity to continue to work with Plastic Tides as Junior Ambassadors.
Location: The camp will be based out of the Paddle-n-More site at Myers Park in Lansing, New York. Campers will paddle to other sites along the lake and could travel 10 miles or more from the park. The last 3 days and 2 nights of camp students will be out on an expedition, this could take them to neighboring lakes and rivers depending what they plan.
