Project Wadi Attir has launched an Eco-Camp for “young ecologists” in the Negev, and yesterday was their first day of camp!
Thirty five local students from the 3rd to 5th grades are part of this first cohort, which will meet for a nine-day session. Amran Amarni, Director of the Visitor’s Center, said, “We have based this intensive project, and its curriculum, on The Sustainability Laboratory’s Five Core Principles of Sustainability, and I am so happy and excited to share it with the children.”
Please enjoy these pictures from the first day of camp, where students participated in team-building and challenge exercises, eco-art projects, and some bio-research and observation with a dedicated group of seven Arabic-speaking counselors–five from the Bedouin community, one Jewish, and one British!
