Every summer MMSB brings the 3Rs - reduce, reuse and recycle - to the great outdoors through our ongoing partnership with the MUN Botanical Garden and The Fluvarium summer camp programs.
MMSB's Waste Reduction Experts take camp participants on a guided walk in a natural outdoor setting to explore how we can use the 3Rs every day to help keep Newfoundland and Labrador clean and healthy. Camp participants explore woods trails learning along the way how nature reduces, reuses and recycles everything. This youth-oriented program lets children discover where on earth everyday products come from and how we can use the 3Rs to lessen our impact on the earth.
MMSB has once again partnered with the Division of Lifelong Learning’s Kids@MUN program to offer our Enviro Kids program for children ages 5-8 and NEW this year ECO-ISLAND for youth ages 9-12.
Registration is still open! Visit Division of Lifelong Learning to register today!

Eco-Island (ages 9-12)

Eco-Island is a mysterious place that provides us with everything we need to live – food, water, shelter, but it also provides us with lots of things we want too. Campers will learn all about the natural environment by helping the elusive survivors of Eco-Island reduce, reuse, recycle and compost! Campers will send messages in a bottle to the island, and teach the survivors how to keep Eco-Island clean and healthy!
