Environmental Camp

The Public Work's Solid Waste Division offers an annual summer camp. The Environmental Camp provides quality science education in a hands-on setting at the Environmental Learning Center, located on Hwy 18, Jackson, MS . Our campers learn while having a great time!

The Environmental Camp emphasizes experiential learning. Campers spend most of their time outside observing and interacting with nature. Science concepts are introduced in a fun environment, with crafts, games and hands-on activities.
