Backyard Bugs Camp

Insects cover our planet, yet many are hiding right under our noses! Spend the week investigating the incredible diversity of earth’s largest group of animals. They creep, crawl, fly, buzz, and flutter all around us. Make bug trappers, build an insectarium, design buggy costumes to wear, and spend lots of time up close with our tiniest backyard neighbors.Docent Camp
Schedule: July 14-18, 2014, 9 AM - Noon, Monday-Friday.

Habitat Hideaways Camp

People live in buildings, but what about our animal neighbors? In this jungle construction camp, we’ll learn how to build like a beaver and nest like a newt! We’ll dig kid-size burrows out in the forest. We’ll spin giant spider webs along the trail. And we’ll create our very own crawfish chimneys around the pond. Join us for the fort-building fun!
Schedule: July 21-25, 2014, 9 AM - Noon, Monday-Friday.

New! Animal Antics Camp

From singing cicadas to dancing dragonflies, we’ll explore the theatrical side of the animal kingdom during this creative, hands-on camp. Campers will design their own wildlife puppet shows and compete in animal karaoke. We’ll act out the lives of animals through science games, costume creation, art projects and imaginative play. Join us for the fun as we explore the amazing adaptations and incredible lives of our native Texas animals.
Schedule: July 28-August 1, 2014, 9 AM - Noon, Monday-Friday.

Pond Camp

For our most daring adventurers, we’ll spend this action-packed week exploring the exciting, underwater world of our creeks, ponds, bays and bayous. We’ll design our own pond aquariums, investigate the animals that live beneath the water’s edge, and explore the hidden habitats of Rummel Creek.
Schedule: August 4-8, 2014, 9 AM - 12:30 PM, Monday-Friday.

Survivor Camp

Do you have what it takes to survive in the wild? We’ll test our nature survival skills as we learn to build shelters, filter our own water, start a fire without a match, cook using the sun, and make a tasty snack from plants (and bugs!) found here in our forest. New this year, we’ll all gather back together on Friday night to test our orienteering skills after dark, camp-out in our shelters, and enjoy a tasty campfire meal!
Schedule: August 11-15, 2014, 9 AM - 12:30 PM, Monday-Friday. Optional Nighttime Camp-Out: Friday, August 15: 6:30-9:30 PM
