Conservation Leadership in Action Week (CLAW)
Open to rising 9th-12th graders
Dig your claws in for an intensive, week-long overnight summer camp with scientists from the Tennessee Aquarium Conservation Institute. We will explore the many ways we interact with the environment through our rivers and streams. We will paddle, hike, and snorkel, to learn more about the watery world and animals that live around us. Students who complete camp will have access to TNACI scientists as resources for future projects so they can continue their development as a water conservation hero. Spots are limited and competitive.
CLAW will take place June 16 - 22, 2013 with a family lunch as part of our closing activities. Students will live in the dorms at Baylor School and use their classrooms as a base for our activities. The total cost is $750. Full and partial scholarships are available for those in need of assistance. To apply:
Complete this application form and have an adult who is not related to you (like a teacher, scout leader, supervisor, or minister) fill out this recommendation form.
The deadline for application and recommendation forms has been extended to April 30, 2013. Those who applied by April 1 will be notified of acceptance by April 15, 2013. Open to rising 9th-12th graders.
