CEED Summer Leadership and Conservation Program

Is Your Teen Ready for Leadership in Protecting Nature?

CEED’s Leadership and Conservation Program is for teens who are ready for more than a regular camp experience.  The program is designed to help develop future scientists and conservationists, while strengthening their leadership skills, which will help them whatever they do in life.

For weeks one through four at Post Morrow and Smith’s Point, teens will not only go out in the field doing some real science, but they will also bring their knowledge back to the younger children, which is why they’ll be wearing STAFF tee-shirts. During this experience, your children will learn to seine and identify organisms, lead hikes, and become a mentor for the younger children.  In all the activities, there will be an emphasis on team building and connections.

During weeks five through eight, teens will be working on conservation projects at the Washington Lodge and Dennis Puleston Preserve. During this experience, teens will participate in and learn about several conservation projects at CEED and around Long Island, including our Bobwhite Quail project, the Bat project, and tracking Eastern Box Turtle initiatives.

Sessions run from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. During the first four weeks, your teen will be helping in a counselor-in-training role, so we offer those weeks at a reduced charge.  We are also offering discounts for multi-week registrations.

The Shannon Kiernan Leadership and Conservation Scholarship is provided by a generous donation from the family and a friend of the family in memory of Shannon. To read more about Shannon and the scholarship, click here.

The Shannon Kiernan Leadership and Conservation Scholarship is provided by a generous donation from the family and a friend of the family in memory of Shannon. This scholarship provides one child with a multi-week experience in our CEED Leadership and Conservation Program. This opportunity is provided to a teen interested in science who would otherwise not have this opportunity.

Shannon (1/16/78-2/12/06) was a 28-year-old high school physics teacher in New Hampshire when her life was cut short during a snowboarding accident. She had a passion for teaching and for our beautiful environment and could often be found hiking, chasing sunsets, or dancing in a thunderstorm. During her short life, she truly made a difference to her students. Whether it was teaching a junior ranger program at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge in Virginia or outdoor adventure classes at Snow Mountain Ranch in Colorado….Shannon loved the great outdoors and sharing that love with her students.
