Ecology Day Camp is an educational and fun annual camp hosted by The University of Mississippi Field Station during the summer months starting from June until early July. There are five sessions offered during the summer to different age groups.

Past camps have included such activities and topics as: bug collection and identification, water quality, tree identification, fire ants and spiders study, and various arts and crafts activities.
