Dickinson County Nature Center offering No School Day Camps in October 

The Dickinson County Nature Center will host two No School Day Camps in October, on Monday, October 14, when Okoboji Elementary doesn't have school, and on Monday, October 21 when Spirit Lake Elementary has a day off.

Environmental Education Coordinator Bryanna Kuhlman says the camps are for students currently in TK through 5th Grade.  "We are going to just invite the kids out on a day they don't have school and we hope to get a lot of free play in outside and outdoor exploration, talk about how fall is changing, what's happening to our leaves, what animals are doing, hopefully make some animal observations, and then, of course, we're probably going to be doing a few crafts.  The Nature Center provides two snacks, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon, but we ask our participants to bring a sack lunch.  The cost is $20 per participant and we cap it at 20 students."

She notes that the Spirit Lake Camp is full, however there is still room for the Okoboji Camp on October 14. Contact the Dickinson County Nature Center for details 712-336-6352.
