What is an Eco Superhero?

Eco Warrior or Eco Superhero? What do these terms mean at Tollgate Farm? Returning for its second year, Eco Warriors, now called Eco Superhero Camp is for ages 5 – 12. Based on our flagship Green Science Adventure Camp, this week has a special focus on sustainability and how kids can make a positive difference in their environment. A full day field trip on a bus, lots of hands-on learning, and a daily STEM project to design and build a  carnival game from re-purposed materials are just a sprinkling of what this camp has to offer. This camp was so popular that many of last year’s campers are returning this year!

The same week, Eco Challenge Camp offers another time of environmentally-focused camp but for the slightly older camper ages 12-14. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to explore the depths of your local body of water without getting wet or having to hold your breath for more than a minute? We have the solution for you! Join us for a week of exploration and challenges geared toward learning about aquatic ecosystems of southeast Michigan. Come and create a fully submersible ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) while learning engineering concepts, problem solving, design skills, and teamwork in the following areas:

  • Buoyancy/displacement
  • Propulsion
  • Soldering
  • Tool safety and usage
  • Electricity/circuits and switches
  • Waterproofing
  • Depth measurement
  • Biological sampling
  • Invasive species
  • And more….
