Summer Nature Camp 2014

Summer Nature Camp Kids

An educational experience awaits your child at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History’s annual Summer Nature Camp! Studying science and history helps children to know and understand the world around them.

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History 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.

The Museum facilities include classroom areas, the Discovery Room, and a 40-acre park, all used to enhance your child's learning experience. Our staff members are experienced teachers and, to ensure personalized instruction, classes are kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10. Of course, this means classes fill quickly, so you will want to register soon!
