Spring Mini-Camp 2014

Spring Mini Camp 2014Spring Mini-Camp 2014 Dates: March 10 - March 14
Register today to reserve your child's spot!

This spring, join us as we take students, ages 4-12, on an exciting adventure as we travel through five historical time periods that helped shape today’s America. Your child will have a hands-on history adventure through interactive lessons, crafts, and games. This week history comes to life!

Kids will learn the answer to these questions: When was it acceptable to eat meals with your hands? What is a “Hooverville”? When was the game Monopoly most popular? What was the average age of a soldier in the Civil War? Do we still play pioneer games today?

Each day is a stand alone day – you may register your child for one day or for all five! Topics to be covered are by the day: Monday, Mar.10 - Colonial America; Tuesday, Mar.11- American Revolution; Wednesday, Mar.12 - Civil War Days; Thursday, Mar.13 - America 1890s-1920s; and Friday, Mar.14 - America in the 1930s

Camp is from 9-3 with before and after camp care available.

Don’t miss this educational experience for your child at the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History’s Spring Mini Camp 2014!  Studying science and history helps children to know and understand the world around them. The Museum offers children 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.

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