Summer Camps Begin at Darke County Parks

During the week of June 13-17, the Darke County Parks hosted their first of many summer camps, “Paddling, Hiking & Camping”. The young campers had a blast learning the ins and outs of their canoes and kayaks on a local pond, taking advantage of the gorgeous summer weather by splashing around during game time. The enthusiastic campers then put their skills to the test on an afternoon paddle down Greenville Creek, daringly dodging rainclouds and rocks. The week concluded with an exciting campout at Lake Loramie State Park, which included a beautiful canoe trip during twilight around the canals and an owl hike after dark where the campers were blessed by a couple of talkative Barred Owls. The camper’s demonstrated true skill throughout the camp; in fact not a single person tipped their boats all week! If you missed this camp, don’t worry there are more to come.

For more information regarding upcoming summer camps please feel free to check out the website at www.darkecountyparks.org or give the Nature Center a call at 937-548-0165.
