Student Camp Sessions Returns to Woolaroc
By Tourism Industry Partner
Remember when you were a child and you dreamed of going to a summer camp where you could learn about wild animals, go to a Mountain Man Camp, walk the rugged trails, learn where oil comes from, canoe on the lake, catch a fish, make pottery, learn Indian dances, meet historical figures and much more? Over the last four summers, more than 400 children have been able to experience those very things at Camp Woolaroc! The staff of Woolaroc is busily planning their agenda for the 2011 version as the best day camp in Oklahoma returns again to Woolaroc Museum & Wildlife Preserve. The 2011 camp will be on July 19-21 for ages 6 to 8 and on July 26-28 for ages 9 to 11. The camp sessions will run from 10 am to 3:00 pm and will include three exciting days of fun, learning and adventures.
Children will have the opportunity to learn about the environment at Woolaroc, visit the Mountain Man Camp, learn about the Museum, find out about all the different animals that call Woolaroc “home” and learn about lifestyles 150 years ago, make special projects, visit with professional re-enactors from the 1800’s and much, much more!
The cost of the camp is $60 per person or $50 if you are a Member of Woolaroc. There is limited space and the groups are filling up quickly, so if you want to sign your children up for the 2011 Camp, you are encouraged to do so soon. For more information about Camp Woolaroc, you can call 918-336-0307, ext. 10 or 11 Monday through Friday or go to www.woolaroc.org.
Woolaroc is located 12 miles SW of Bartlesville on State Highway 123 and is open Tuesday thru Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. After Labor Day weekend, it is open Wednesday thru Sunday.
