Rowe - Summer Camp
Rowe Sanctuary
Big Bend SOAR (Summer Orientation About Rivers) Camp is a nature day camp where children can learn about the Platte River and other natural areas in and around Buffalo and Kearney Counties. Campers take part in a variety of activities that include natural and physical science, language arts, history, agriculture, music and art, while having fun.

SOAR is a blast!! Campers get to participate in activities not normally offered during the school year like getting wet and muddy - all for the sake of learning!
