Following a two-year hiatus because of COVID, the Citizens’ Association of Liberty Lakes plans to offer a one-week camp, introducing students who have completed third, fourth or fifth grade to various aspects of lake science.

Topics will include watersheds, erosion, invasive plants, and how to maintain a healthy lake, according to a news release from the association.

Lake Keepers Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday, Aug. 1-5 at the Lake St. George State Park, at 278 Belfast Augusta Road in Liberty.

The camp is open to area residents as well as students who summer in the Liberty area.

To apply and find an application form, visit libertylakes.net. For more information, contact Pat Smith at 617-455-8527 or [email protected].

The association aims for the students to continue to be involved in lake stewardship as they grow up, and that they will pass along what they have learned to others.

Lake Keepers Camp was first offered in 2006. Since that time, more than 100 students have attended, many of them returning as camp counselors or boat inspectors at the park boat launch.
