We are proud to host the annual BNT Eco Camp at Forfar Field Station this week.
Through a competitive selection process, motivated young environmental leaders receive a full scholarship to attend an intense week-long summer camp on Andros Island.
Eco Camp disconnects participants from the hustle and bustle of technology and other services one might take for granted and focuses their attention on natural resources, conservation, and sustainability.
Daily schedules include morning birdwatching walks, interactive classroom presentations, boat rides to unique cays, snorkeling coral reefs and brainstorm sessions to work collaboratively on both an Andros community outreach event and a community project for their home island.
Field trips to Blue Hole National Park to witness the majesty of blue holes for themselves as well as a night’s stay under the stars in the surrounding pine forest fosters an appreciative connection to the unique ecosystems and culture of Andros Island.
Eco Campers experience first-hand that sometimes, one must disconnect from the world, to reconnect with nature.
