SESSION 2: KSS Golf Club!
Dates: Monday, June 26 - Friday, June 30
FORE! Join us for a week on the green. Learn and expand your golf skills through physics and practice as we explore Keystone Ranch Golf Course. Campers will take a look at wildlife and the habitat golf courses in the Rocky Mountain create as they hit the links daily.
Leadership Focus: Respect
Keystone Science School strives to meet our mission through the motto, “Science, Adventure, FUN!” This summer we are introducing a new program focused on broadening our campers’ perspective through the game of golf. In our world, we often look to play, have fun, and be outside within our recreational activities. There are times that our hobbies and activities can sometimes be a detriment to our natural habitats. Golf is a game that often gets a bad reputation when it comes to environmental stewardship. They are often seen as a green oasis in the middle of the desert, a flattening of the landscape when trees are cut for new courses and a massive spreading of chemicals to make grass grow, be green, and stand up to shifting temperatures throughout the summer. While golf can have a negative effect on some environments there are strategies golf courses and superintendents can take to create and maintain golf courses in harmony with local environments.
