In the Summer of 1995, we offered our first Sense of Wonder Camp for girls. The writings of Rachel Carson express the philosophy that guides our camp. “If I had influence over the good fairy who is supposed to preside over the christening of all children I should ask that her gift to each child in the world be a sense of wonder so indestructible that it would last throughout life.” These words of Rachel Carson express the philosophy that guides our camp. We want girls to know the beauty and mystery of nature and to see and learn about female role models who hold a deep regard for the Earth and the amazing life on Her.
Held in the Lancaster County Park, the camp is sponsored by Full Circle Susquehanna, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) women's organization dedicated to the empowerment of girls and women. The camp is staffed by Full Circle Susquehanna board members, guest presenters and Sense of Wonder alumni.
Camp is held every year the week that includes Summer Solstice. For a Sense of Wonder Camp brochure, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
