This summer Oklahoma’s Alabaster Caverns State Park will be holding a week-long camp for kids.

The camp, dubbed Mission: Exploration-A Science Experience, is being held to get kids, who are going into the 7th and 8th grades, interested in science and the things around them.

During the exciting week, students will have the opportunity to attend a number of field trips including visiting Salt Plains to dig crystals, Boiling Springs, and of course some caving at Alabaster Caverns.

In addition to the field trips, students will also attend classes led by professionals on a variety of subjects. Astronomy, macro-invertebrates, geology, bats, cave formations, safety, animal adaptation, and native plants are just some of the exciting topics.

The week-long camp, which runs from June 10th to 14th, will be based out of the University of Central Oklahoma‘s Selman Living Laboratory near Alabaster Caverns.

For more information about the camp or to request an application form, contact Alabaster Caverns Park Manager Mike Caywood by phone at (580) 621-3381 or by e-mail at [email protected].
