Pre-K through fourth grade students from Drexel Academy became scientists today when they participated in outdoor learning activities hosted by Camp Loughridge. Our Customer Liaison, Naturalist, and Education Consultant Reese Hundley taught students about the biological processes involved in aquaponics. 🔬

Our Summer Camp and Outdoor Classroom teams ignite curiosity and exploration in Campers through our intentional programming and the added STEM and STEAM adventures.

Our all new STEMber! utilizes Camper-driven play to inspire and encourage the kids in nature. Send your kids on a journey into the “wilds” found at Camp Loughridge. Let us reveal the wonder of God’s natural creation to them, while inspiring their critical thinking, encouraging perseverance, and instilling the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives, with a bit of the Engineering Design Process thrown in.

Outdoor Classroom Field Classes for Primarily Students in Grades 5th & 6th

Camp Loughridge Outdoor Classroom (CLOC) brings sciences & social studies (STEM/STEAM) to life for students and teachers outdoors, where they naturally occur. The 5-hour program dovetails into current school specific curriculum and meets or exceeds Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS) for grade specific Sciences, as the school year progresses.

Class sizes range from 20-50 students, with six required school-sponsored facilitators. The Class day generally entails three rotating activities focused on imagination, practical life/school skills and a nature walk, exploring some of the 188 acres and lake ecology of this nearly 100-year-old Camp site.

Pricing: $35/student, with scholarships available. Water bottles and Student Journals are provided. Please contact Program Director for scholarship availability for student fees and transportation. This is a school sponsored event. Bring your lunch and wear your old shoes!

We have a vision that kids from all circumstances will experientially gain from the Outdoor Classroom the grit necessary to succeed at school, in their future vocation and in relationships with their friends and family.
Our goals are to indelibly instill curiosity, respect, self-control, and social intelligence in our student’s character. To give them tools and life skills to take back into their families and community.

Nature challenges kid’s thinking. It provides them with valuable life lessons, and gives them confidence to deal with the scrapes and bumps that come along the way.



Here you will find a list of forms to make your outdoor adventure with us a success!
