Exciting programs this year will revolve around the theme “Weather or Not.” Campers will explore a Weather Scavenger Hunt, Clouds in a Bottle, Wacky Science, and can take part in swimming, shooting sports, wildlife and campfire programs and an evening dance. Campers will come away with an increased knowledge and awareness of our natural world, enjoy outdoor adventures with a scientific focus, and increase self-confidence and independence.

Campers are supervised by a team of trained counselors and adult staff. A full-time nurse is also on duty. Delicious home-style meals are served family-style along with an evening snack. Cabins, which are furnished with bunk beds, help to develop friendships and social skills.

Don’t wait, send in your registration by May 24th and pay only $132.00 which includes a camp T-shirt if registered by May 24th.

Kids’ Outdoor Science Camp is sponsored in cooperation with the Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Ohio State University Extension Offices of Ohio.
