About EcoWeekend

What is EcoWeekend?

EcoWeekend is a nature retreat for singles and families, young and old. It's held at Camp Oty' Okwa located near Conkles Hollow in the beautiful Hocking Hills (Southeast Ohio).

EcoWeekend offers an affordable and enjoyable weekend of learning about nature from experienced instructors who share their expertise, enthusiasm, and knowledge of our natural world.

Programs include instructions and excursions on subjects that range from wild flowers to wild animals, backyards to backwoods, creatures to crafts, water sports to winged flight, trees to telescopes, and much more.

When is EcoWeekend?

Eco Weekend is always held on the first weekend in May that precedes Mother's Day weekend. From Friday evening until noon on Sunday, you will be housed, fed, and offered 10 or more programs and activities that will teach and guide you in the wonders of the natural world.

Programs are scheduled conveniently for morning, afternoon and nighttime segments. Schedule a full day of activities, or take a break to find your own special time with binoculars, camera, drawing pad, books or a little shuteye that includes the sounds of nature in your daydreams.


Youth Programs

Youth programs are specially designed for pre-K (4 years old) through Grade 8.



EcoWeekend does not provide child care. Programs can not accept children younger than 4 years old.  We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
