Golden, Colorado – Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy Colorado's great outdoors with Camp GO, Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl at Jefferson County Public Library’s Golden Library. Bring the family and learn outdoor safety tips while building skills for a fun and adventurous summer.
The event takes place from 4 – 6 p.m., June 5, at the Golden Library, 1019 10th St, Golden, CO 80401. Children and their families will learn to read a compass and trail signs, evaluate weather conditions, fire safety, and how to be a steward of nature.
“The purpose of Camp GO is to build awareness and knowledge of the outdoors, promote the health benefits of being outdoors, and to encourage stewardship of outdoor spaces and resources,” said Stacy Fowler, Camp GO Founder.
This program is presented in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, Jefferson County Public Library, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
