Goodbye to our wonderful summer students!

The end of summer is a bittersweet time for the students here at Green Venture. On the one hand, we
are all moving on to another year of interesting studies, but are sad to see the summer end. We’ve all
had such an incredible time here at Green Venture. The opportunity to gain work experience in a field
we are all interested in, before even being done our degrees, was both valuable and enjoyable. We all
gained varied knowledge in all the sectors Green Venture explores, from composting, to energy
conservation, to education. In addition to this, to be employed at EcoHouse was both interesting and
rewarding – the opportunity to see these innovative changes for environmental sustainability in action is
not available at all workplaces. Between the office work and camp, being employed as Environmental
Programs Assistants was a diverse and valuable experience.
The camp was a learning experience for both us and our campers; we all grew as people and EcoStars!
To be able to see kids who came to camp start to be aware of their environmental footprint, and try to
make more conscious decisions was a wonderful experience. Though kids can be a handful, in the end
it’s a really rewarding experience to be able to work with them. Everyone enjoyed hands on crafts like
seed bombs, running games like foxes and rabbits, big nature hikes, and the variety of fun field trips we
went on. We still laugh about some of the things the kids said. They also taught us a few things too! To
be able to teach and learn from kids who come from various backgrounds was one of the best parts of
the job.
Overall, our experience working with Green Venture was memorable and valuable. It was a wonderful
way to spend the summer, and hopefully we’ll be back next year!
