Four years ago, a group of young, passionate nature-lovers from diverse disciplines founded Peruvian non-profit "ConCiencia" - meaning both "awareness" and "with science". Started as an environmental education summer camp for a small fishing community in northern Peru, today we are a nature-based education platform working with hundreds of students and many teachers. Together we create innovative experiences, designing outdoor lessons through student-driven learning projects.
Our core team of conservationists, educators and communicators is backed by a rotating cast of varied professionals such as architects, photographers and musicians.
We focus on underserved communities, where dependence on natural resources is highest but understanding of the processes that support them may be lowest.
~Do you know what ConCiencia Summer Nature Camp is about?~
It's about bringing the joy of Nature to dozens of children for free! They will grow up healthier and more protective of their environment.
We can't do it without some help from our friends.
