Camp KEEP has become a time-honored tradition for students in Kern County. Now with the coronavirus pandemic, that tradition is put on hold.

So one local teacher decided to try and help bring the experience to students through a video he made called "Camp KEEP Quarantine."

Troy Coppola works at Standard Middle School. He said a coworker of his has two children who attend the school and where unable to attend Camp KEEP this year.

Camp KEEP, also known as the Kern Environmental Education Program, offers 5th and 6th grade students the opportunity to learn about ecological concepts while they explore and study a variety of ecosystems through first-hand experiences. While the camps are closed to students, the program has offered a number of online classes to help kids stay informed, educated, and entertained.
