Learning doesn’t have to stop just because there is no school.

No School Day Camp will be held two days in March at the Dickinson County Nature Center in Okoboji — 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Monday, March 9, for Okoboji Elementary School and Monday, March 16, for Spirit Lake Elementary. Elementary-aged students from outside of these districts are also welcome to attend.

“No School Day Camp is a fun way for kids to get out and enjoy the Dickinson County Nature Center,” said Bryanna Kuhlman, environmental education coordinator. “It will be fun to explore the outdoor winter habitats along with having the nature center to ourselves to explore Pollinator Paradise on a day that the nature center is closed to the public.”

Each camp will have the same format and will include outdoor activities, including snow-related games if the weather allows, as well as free play, crafts, time with live animal ambassadors and nature center explorations.

No School Day Camps are a great opportunity for students in TK-fourth to come to the Dickinson County Nature Center during the off-season. If students are unable to come to summer camp or want to see if they would like nature center summer camps, these one-day camps are the perfect programs to attend.

Registration is $20 per student and opens Feb. 1 here. Each camp is limited to 20 students, so make sure to register early.
