Young Explorers’ Club


The Missouri River Bird Observatory hosts a super fun summer day camp for all the young explorers in the area! The summer of 2019 will be our third year of this amazing experience. 

The camp’s programs and activities are focused on exploration, improving observational and outdoor skills, encouraging critical thinking, increasing knowledge of Missouri’s native species, physical activities and, of course, having fun! Most of our activities fall under the Missouri Learning Standards and can further reinforce concepts your student is learning in school! Our campers have fun and go home with new knowledge and new friendships. 

Who: Register if you are are a Young Explorer between the ages of 8-11! Parents are welcome to stay for the activities.

To make sure every child has a quality experience, we are limiting the number of participants to 12 each day, so sign up soon!

When: Camp runs from the last week in May through the end of July. Specific dates and times for 2019 are TBD. Please feel free to send an email to the address listed below with the time of day that works best for you for us to take into consideration. 

Where: The Observatory is located in Arrow Rock, MO. 

Cost: $8 for each day you sign up. You can register for every week or for only a few days! (Cost includes a mid-morning snack and reusable MRBO water bottle!) This year we will be giving a discount of three days (one week) free to any camper who registers for the entire summer.
