Starry Nights Mini Camp at the Park District

There is still time to sign up for the Starry Nights Mini Camp at the Darke County Parks Nature Center on August 11-13 from 9pm-11pm. The former cutoff date of July 14th has been extended, so give the Nature Center a call. The camp is open to kids ages 10-12, and the fee is $30. Participants will spend these late nights gazing at the celestial bodies that fill the night sky. Learning the planets, constellations, and stars will introduce a whole new element of the natural world to these campers. This camp coincides with the peak of the Perseids meteor shower! Not only will campers learn the stars above, they’ll learn how to operate the telescopes in order to view them best. Keep your fingers crossed for clear skies and join them! Call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 to place your camper’s name on the list. Registration forms can be picked up at the Nature Center (4267 State Route 502 West) or be found on their website: Please call with questions or for additional information.
