Join park staff at the Driftwood Nature Center for Spring Break at Tenkiller State Park. You'll enjoy a variety of fun, family-friendly activities the park has planned for you and your family. From making a campfire and roasting s'mores to naturalist events and craft workshops, this week off from school is sure to be a blast as you spend it immersed in nature. While you're there, don't forget to explore your surroundings at beautiful Tenkiller State Park.
The organized events kick off on Friday, March 9th. Start your morning at 10am by making a fun memento of your stay at Tenkiller State Park. Be sure to show up for Birdsong Bingo at 1pm, followed by the Family Fun Hour at 3pm, featuring a hula hoop and seed-spitting contest, along with a knobby knee race and water bottle rocket launching. Saturday's festivities feature a naturalist scavenger hunt at 10am, followed by a presentation on Oklahoma reptiles at 1pm, wrapping up with s'mores and campfire charades at 6:30pm.
Come back on Tuesday for an incredible eagle-watching tour, followed by the Junior Naturalist Challenge on Wednesday at 10am. Meet Sally the Salamander at 1pm, and make "dirt babies" (Tenkiller State Park's version of a Chia Pet) at 2pm. Thursday's festivities will include spring wildflower journaling, followed by t-shirt screenprinting at 1pm and an animal track identification program at 3pm. Most events are free, but some—including campfire s'mores, the dirt babies workshop and the animal tracks identifying program—have a suggested $1 donation.
