Darke County Parks to Hold Virtual Summer Camp

The Darke County Parks’ naturalists have been hard at work exploring new ways to offer educational opportunities that adhere to social distancing guidelines. This spring, many educational videos were featured on the Darke County Parks’ Facebook page as well as Youtube.

Now, naturalists are transitioning into summer camp season. While originally scheduled summer camps were cancelled due to the virus, DCP is offering a unique summer camp this year, “Outside the Box”. Since current situations due to COVID-19 concerns do not allow us to gather, we will bring summer camp to you!

Here's how it will work:

  1. Each "OUTSIDE-the-Box" camp will feature 5 days of activities, with most, if not all, supplies provided.
  2. First day of camp, swing by the Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie to pick up your supply box. (If you are unable to pick up your supply box, click the box at registration and we'll drop it off at your address!)
  3. Each day's activities will feature a special camp-only Youtube video link featuring one of the Parks' naturalists leading your camper on the day's activities. You can do camp activities any time of day that works for your family!
  4. On Friday of camp week, we will host a web-stream (zoom-style) for all campers to join the group and share what they discovered with all Parks' Naturalists and we will do a final activity with everyone on the stream!

To register your child for “Outside the Box” summer camp, visit or call the nature center at 937-548-0165.
