Summer Day Camp Announced at the Center

This summer, the Nebraska Nature and Visitor Center partners with Nebraska 4-H Camps and the Museum of Nebraska Art (MONA) to bring an exciting and educational day camp for children ages 8-11. The four day camp runs from July 11 through July 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The camps include a blend of nature activities with traditional 4-H offerings such as archery and team-building exercises. Add a dash of art and science and stir. The fee is just $115 per child!

"Last summer's day camp was an absolute blast," NNVC program coordinator Dan Glomski says. "Everyone -- kids, counselors, and adults alike -- had a lot of fun. We're already receiving calls from parents whose children participated last year. "

"The nature center is a perfect venue for 4-H activities. The river and prairie literally in our backyard offer limitless possibilities for teaching all kinds of topics. And the partnership with 4-H and MONA brings a lot of experience into our day camps."

Some snacks are included in the cost; parents/guardians must provide each child with a sack lunch for each day. Children should also wear clothing that can get dirty and/or wet. A signed release form is required for all participants.

Space in day camp is limited to 20 children, and parents are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible. For more information, call 308 382-1820 to register.

Located on the I-80 Alda exit 305, the Nebraska Nature & Visitor Center exists to provide a place where people of all ages can connect to nature along the Platte River. Go to for more information.
