CLAYTON — The Thousand Islands Land Trust’s second annual TILTKids Camp invites children to test their wilderness skills at 10 a.m. Aug. 2 at Zenda Farm Preserve. This year’s theme is “Wilderness Explorers” and will feature a variety of workshops with local experts: Kim Cullin from Minna Anthony Common Nature Center, Wellesley Island, will show youths how to use a compass to collect and decode clues in the forest; Kate Breheny and Lindsey Leve from Save the River will demonstrate the positive environmental impact of catch-and-release programs; Kelly Tuttle, an art teacher at Indian River Central School, will teach an artistic map-making exercise; Skyler Withington will teach knot-tying to create paracord bracelets; Sue-Ryn Burns, local wildlife rehabilitator, will share protocol for handling injured wildlife, and Jon Taylor of Taylored Architecture will lead an activity where youths will build a survival shelter in the woods.
Camp participants should be accompanied by a guardian. Refreshments will be provided and participants will receive a TILTKids T-shirt and goody bag. Advance registration is requested. Camp is offered exclusively to those with a TILTKids membership. For more information, call TILT at 686-5345.
