Blanchard Springs, home of the beautiful Blanchard Springs Caverns, is also known as the Folk Music Capital of the World. With Peer Leader Jo Claire Robertson ‘14 and her league of OR leaders, enjoy a tour around the caverns (where it’s always a nice, cool 58 degrees – perfect for the hot Arkansas summer), followed by swimming and picnicking at the Blanchard Springs Recreation Area. You’ll be staying at cabins in the Ozark Folk Center, and at night you can explore the downtown area of this charming town, eat at the Skillet Restaurant, and get to know your fellow new students – not to mention enjoy the festivities of Mountains, Music, and Motorcycles!
