Public Work's Solid Waste Division offers an annual camp. Our environmental camp  is designed to immerse youth in nature and facilitate the development of environmental stewardship through an innovative earth-based program.

Campers will learn the importance of energy and resource conservation; preserving and sustaining the natural environment; the benefits of recycling; the effects of climate change; the value of ecological diversity; related career paths and good environmental stewardship practices through an engaging, hands-on approach. The campers learn while having a great time!
