The Meg Lowman Treetops Camp is designed for young ladies between the ages of 9 and 12 who take a special interest in science.
“Every year there is a new twist and it’s always a fun experience,” said camper Hailey Green.
Held at the Tanglewood Nature Center & Museum, this camp was named after a world famous canopy ecologist who also is a Twin Tiers native and inspiration. The Meg Lowman Treetops Camp was designed with one goal in mind.
“It’s a whole week of empowering young girls to feel confident,” Tanglewood Nature Center & Museum’s Executive Director Elaine Spacher said. “To get girls to realize and understand and feel lifted up in the sciences. To make them know they can do anything.”
Activities include hiking, working with animals, studying weather, and all things science. Among this, a hot air balloon demonstration to learn more.
“Opening their eyes to something new is a great part of the program,” Liberty Balloon Company’s Captain Lee Teitsworth said. “So, one aspect is to introduce students and kids to ballooning to kind of expand their understanding of the world and what’s available and accessible to them.”
