Summer Nature Camp 2019

Summer Nature Camp Kids

Studying science and history helps children to know and understand the world around them. The Museum offers your child this opportunity in a safe, fun, and educational setting. Through non-traditional teaching techniques, campers are encouraged to explore science, animal behavior, history, and their local environment using interactive lessons and educational games and crafts. 

Our facilities include classroom areas, the Discovery Room, and a 40-acre park, all used to enhance your child’s learning experience. Staff members are experienced teachers and, to ensure personalized instruction, classes are kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10. Classes fill up quickly, so register soon! For more information, please call (979) 776-2195.

Each session lasts one week, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
