Camp Bluestem: An ECO Girls Summer Experience

Camp Bluestem 2014 Notice

Greetings and thank you for your continued support of ECO Girls and Camp Bluestem.

We are sorry to inform you that ECO Girls will not be hosting Camp Bluestem in June of 2014 due to funding constrains and the relocation of key staff members. Camp Director Zakiyah Sayyed is currently doing research in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa and Faculty Director Tiya Miles is taking an academic leave to study environmental history. We will miss all of our wonderful Eco Girls this June. Campers, we wish you a fun and educational summer!

There are other great summer camps hosted by U of M that we want to make ECO Girls parents aware of. Please explore the possibilities in the attached list, and stay tuned for future notices about ECO Girls events.

Undergraduate students in the Department of Women's Studies created a first aid guide for Camp Bluestem campers and counselors. We would like to share the work of these students here, but wish to remind you to seek out a physician for medical advice. Read the first aid guide here.
