Background

This summer camp was developed for Barren County Middle School students exiting 6th grade.  During the week-long, ranger led camp, students will learn about the various ecosystems occuring within Mammoth Cave National Park.  They will specifically focus on cave and forest ecosystems, as well as both the benefits and dangers of fire in the natural landscape.  Students gain valuable knowledge as they perform fire related experiments and activities.
