Hartman Reserve Nature Center naturalists offer a Road Trip Spring Break Camp every year as a way for kids to get out of the house and see some of the coolest, lesser known destinations in Iowa. We provide all transportation and admission fees for all the locations we travel to. Each day we go to different, unique locations! We offer a mix of education, adventure and exploration! Sign up for individual days or you can sign up for the entire week to receive a discount! If you are interested in signing up for the entire week, please call or stop by the Nature Center to process your child's registration. At this time, we are unable to do this online. The cost for per day is $40/child. The cost for the entire week is $175/child. If your child has a key card, please call the Nature Center for details. This camp is for kids ages 10-14.


We're headed to the Science Center of Iowa in Des Moines! Kids will get to not only go through the Science Center, but we've also scheduled 2 special programs to our visit!

Embark on a mission to investigate the dramatic sounds of Costa Rica's rainforests, Hawaii's coral reefs and Mongolia's vast grasslands. Learn about the tools that scientists use to record and analyze sounds. Explore basic acoustics through interactive activities and incredible slow-motion footage. Discover what soundscapes tell us about the health of our planet.​

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity: Experience one of the most mysterious — and misunderstood — wonders of the Universe. Narrated by Liam Neeson. Sponsored by NASA. ​
