Time & Location

Mar 21, 2022, 9:00 AM – Mar 23, 2022, 6:00 PM

Ozark Natural Science Center, 1905 Madison 1305, Huntsville, AR 72740, USA

About the Event

ONSC offers a unique, immersion-based approach to learning about nature and the natural sciences. Students visit us for authentic science learning experiences that are correlated with national and state science learning standards and provide in-depth education in biology, ecology, geology, and social studies – all while students have fun hiking and experiencing nature. Camp activities include day hikes, night hikes, team-building, games, and small-group activities.

Spring break camp will include 3 field groups, grouped by age, with 14 students in each field group:

8 to 10 years old

11 to 13 years old

14 to 17 years old

Students may stay in ONSC's lodges, and will be assigned to rooms by age and gender. 

If you prefer to drop off and pick up your child each day, use coupon code DayCamp.

We also have a limited number of free tickets for parent chaperones. We will need at least one male and one female chaperone for each age group with a maximum of 4 total chaperones. We strive to assign chaperones to field groups that don't include their own child(ren), to allow all students an authentic feeling of "camp independence." However, exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. An interview and background check are required to become a chaperone.
