Rainforest Camp/Teachers' Professional Development

    Environmental Education at Campanario Eco Lodge and
    Biological Reserve

    Environmental education for students of all ages !! !!

    Proyecto Campanario's second mission is to promote
    environmental education to all who spend time at
    Campanario, both local and international visitors.
    Campanario offers 4 basic programs to accommodate different
    age levels, interests, and different lengths of stay.
    Please select the program best suited for you:

    Ecological Tourism Expeditions for the adult or family
    group. Rainforest Conservation Camps for families and/or
    middle and high school students. Tropical Ecology Student
    Courses for university, high school, and middle school
    students. Tropical Ecology Teachers' Programs.

    "Give the gift of a nature trek to your family." Ecological
    Tourism Expeditions for the adult or family group.
    Rainforest Conservation Camps for families and/or middle
    and high school students. Tropical Ecology Student Courses
    for university, high school, and middle school students.
    Tropical Ecology Teachers? Programs.

    "Get away for retreats and your own personal adventure."
    Enviromentally minded individuals, families, groups of
    friends, and corporate executives who want to plan their
    vacations, annual get-togethers and retreats are welcome at
    Campanario. You can spend your days hiking with our
    naturalists, or you might also choose to go fishing,
    kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling. Be sure to plan time
    for just relaxing on the beach or in a hammock. Our goal is
    to have you absorb as many of the sights, sounds, and
    smells of the rainforest as possible. A minimum of a 4-day,
    3-night trip is necessary, but a 6-day, 5-night trip is
    recommended to more fully absorb the wonders of the area.

    "Become involved in environmental education." Conservation
    Camps are special programs we've designed for families and
    middle and high school students. The camps are usually
    scheduled during school vacations and last 6 days and 5
    nights. They are limited in size to ensure adequate
    instruction and supervision. Students of all ages
    participate in extensive hikes and workshops in the
    rainforest to appreciate all its wealth. Evening sessions
    look into the history of the area and discuss deforestation
    and other social pressures affecting the tropics.

    Tropical Ecology Teachers' Programs are designed to give
    hands-on experience to the active instructor who wants
    personal knowledge of the tropics to complement the area
    which he or she teaches. This rigorous program, which runs
    two weeks, includes most course materials, requires a small
    amount of pre-program reading, and assumes a basic
    understanding of biology on the part of the participant.

    The program spends one week on site at the Proyecto
    Campanario facilities in the rainforest and another week
    traveling to different areas of Costa Rica for experience
    in other life zones. It is hoped that you, as a teacher,
    will take back to your students the understanding of the
    urgency to work together to conserve what is left of the
    tropical eco-systems.
