NEW for 2018! Come join the Boonshoft for our first ever week of Field School! Campers will learn what it takes to be a field researcher by being immersed in data collection and observation using real scientific tools and techniques. Topics covered include: aquatic biology, ornithology, entomology, botany, archaeology, and herpetology. Daily trips to new locations will occur to allow campers to compare and contrast a variety of habitats and the life living in each.

Due to the nature of this camp, applicants must be pre-approved to register for camp. Approval will be based on submitting a Letter of Recommendation from a teacher or other non-relative adult who can speak to the student's interest and commitment in this camp.

Recommendation letter(s) should be emailed to with "Field Camp Application" in the subject line. Once approved, campers will receive a special link to register for this camp.

ATTENTION: Parents and interested students should note that this camp will require campers to be in the field throughout the week. This camp runs rain or shine except in the event of extreme heat or lightning. Campers will be outside the majority of the day and should be dressed accordingly; guidelines will be provided. 

*Transportation fee will cover the cost of three (3) days of off-site visits not within walking distance of the Museum.
