Ocean Star Overnight Camp:|
Bring your sleeping bag and come aboard the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig Museum and Education Center and discover the world of petroleum. The Overnight Camp allows participants to learn about the people who spend their lives searching for “black gold” and how their discoveries impact our lives today. Campers will learn about the technology behind the quest for petroleum, various methods of production, and understand the process to convert this valuable resource into products that help society live a healthier, more comfortable life.
We will fuel young minds with engaging activities that teach about the energy that fuels our lives. Spend the evening aboard a real offshore drilling rig and awaken to a deeper, more appreciative understanding of how and why men and women around the world are in pursuit of this major energy source.
Overnight Camps are available on the fourth Friday or fourth Saturday of every month on a first come, first served basis. We require a minimum of 17 total participants, with an appropriate ratio of campers to adults. Our maximum occupancy for an overnight camp is 25 total participants, with an appropriate ratio of campers to adults. Check-in times for overnight camps are between 6:30 and 6:55 PM. Activities will begin promptly at 7:00 PM. Campers are asked to eat dinner before arriving. A late-night snack and continental breakfast are included in the program.
