Kid’s Camp – Where It’s Cool To Conserve Water

The City of Fresno Water Division will host the third annual Kid’s Camp on Friday, June 20, 2008 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration begins at 8:15 a.m.

Children eight to nine years old can spend the morning at the group activity area at Woodward Park learning about the importance of water in a new and exciting way. The camp is free for all City of Fresno water customers and includes lunch and a snack.

The City of Fresno holds Kid’s Camp to build interest and awareness among children about conservation of water, where our water comes from and how we receive it. This half-day camp will also educate children about the water cycle, ways to prevent water waste, and how to keep our water clean through interactive activities.

This year there will be an increased number of entertaining hands-on activities and games, as well as additional interactive displays and educational lessons. Activities include building an ice cream aquifer, planting drought tolerant plants, a water-themed magic presentation, learning how much water it takes to make a hamburger and all children will be deputized as “Water Watchers” at the end of the day.

Participants include the Water Awareness Committee, Tree Fresno, Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District, Fresno County Farm Bureau, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, Department of Water Resources, Kings River Conservation District, Wienerschnitzel, Fresno Grizzlies and the Fresno City Fire Department.
