Experience nature as a classroom without walls during summer camp at the Ozark Natural Science Center.
Fledgling Naturalist Camp
Dates: June 8 - 10
Ages: 8-9 | Tuition: $271
A camp designed for the young and curious naturalist. For pure exploration, we'll roll over logs, pick up all the rocks, examine the soil, get down at the same level as some of our smallest organisms and catch enough bugs to last the rest of summer. Watching birds, listening to night creatures, arts and crafts, astronomy, swimming, and campfires round out this program. This camp experience is packed with activities led by ONSC naturalists that focus on introducing campers to the outdoor world of the Ozarks. This camp has a $100 deposit due upon registration.
