IMG_5859Day2_GracepresentationDay1_swimminghole11169154_885682908134256_5626945360646056826_nWe are looking for a dozen or so teenagers (13 on up) who “get it” about climate change and the need for sustainable actions and civic engagement.

Climate solutions include a broad array of options including: reducing dependence on fossil energy by biking or walking; localizing purchases of food and other necessities; social justice issues such as equitable sharing of resources, etc.

The overnight is free and we will feed the kids. Several teens are coming from Indianapolis who have attended previous climate camp training. One South Bend teen has presented at a TEDx Talk.

If you are a teen or know of a teen who is passionate about exploring climate change solutions please consider joining us and/or sharing this post.

Facilitators include Jim Poyser, Executive Director at Earth Charter Indiana , Charlotte P. Wolfe, PhD, Ecologist and Director at Prairie Winds Nature Farm and science teacher Heather Nimon.

Participants will have the opportunity to be interviewed about their current climate solution ideas on the 219 GreenConnect podcast, hosted by Kathy Legner Sipple. Participants will receive a complimentary copy of “Permaculture Solutions to Climate Change” by local author and permaculture designer Randall Jamrok.

We hope to make this an annual event and one that doesn’t just involve sitting around and discussing or messing around, but has actual follow-up that will either help initiatives already started; or start a new one that teens can get behind. Climate stewardship + youth leadership means: Let’s start a movement! Get REAL, Respect the Earth And Life… Come join us!!

To sign up for the camp, send an email to and include several lines about why you think we should put up with you and feed you for 30 hours– 😉

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP with your email no later than July 10th to ensure your spot.
