Resident Camp

Also, a big shout out to our two Resident Camp partners: 

Camp Ondessonk in Ozark hosted a week-long session with horseback riding, riflelry, swimming, archery, handicrafts, canoeing, kayaking and more. 

Touch of Nature in Makanda hosted both mini sessions and full week sessions with themed activities for three different age levels - including both camp favorites and fun new activities.

Kudos also goes to our volunteer-ran Resident Camp crew from SU 85 - Wayne/Hamilton/White Counties. 


Also,  our STEM Program team hosted two science, technology, engineering and math themed camps
