Winter Mini Camp

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is pleased to announce its 2018 Winter Mini Camp program, Prehistoric Predators, on December 27-28 & Jan 2-4.

Prehistoric Predators

Ever wonder what makes a top predator? Is it more than sharp teeth, claws, or jaws? Want to know the secrets of these fierce beasts of the past? Come learn about history’s greatest hunters at Prehistoric Predators day camp! Fossils records will help us discover what Mosasaur, Saber-toothed cat, Dire Wolf, and Tyrannosaurus rex used to hunt and thrive. We’ll also learn about their prey animals and other predators that lived alongside them.

Camp Activities

Studying history and science helps children, ages 4-12, to learn and understand the world around them. The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History offers children learning opportunities in a safe, fun, and educational setting. Through non-traditional teaching techniques, fascinating lessons and activities, and real Museum artifacts, campers will explore frontier life! 

Students may come for one day, for several days, or even all five. Predator topics include: Tyrannosaurus rex; Mosasaur; Megalodon; Saber-toothed Cat; and Dire Wolf. Fossils records will guide students to discover what these top predators used to hunt and thrive. Kids will also learn about their prey animals and other predators that lived alongside them.  

The Museum facilities include classroom areas, the Discovery Room, and a 40-acre park, all used to enhance the  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 up quickly, so don’t wait to register!
