Camp Ondessonk in Ozark IL will be hosting the 4th Annual Maple-Sugarin’ Weekend March 2-3, 2018. Maple syrup-making is an ancient, time-honored tradition. In the late winter months, maple trees begin their process of releasing a sugary, mineral-rich sap — and Camp’s syrup harvesters become busy tapping these trees for their flavorful rewards. Find out how sweet a learning adventure can be as you learn to tap trees and discover the secrets of the lost art of home maple syrup production. There will also be an opportunity to go to SIUC’s Touch of Nature Environmental Center for their Maple Syrup Festival and Pancake breakfast on your way home from Camp!
