About the Event

Choose one of our 2 camp options, both of which are a 2-day, 1-night exploration adventure:

  • June 2 - June 3, 2022: incoming 6th, 7th, and 8th graders - CLOSED FOR REGISTRATION
  • June 8 - June 9, 2022: incoming 5th graders

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.

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 camp with a maximum of 4 total chaperones for each camp. 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.
