Children ages 4-12 are invited to become a frontier pioneer as they embark on the Museum’s Early America day camp.
The Winter Mini Camp program, Early America: A Pioneer Adventure, will run from Dec. 27-29 and Jan. 3-5. Each day is an eye-opening discovery of different historical mysteries. Explore pioneer life and challenges through stories, interactive lessons, crafts, games, and more.
Studying history and science helps children ages 4-12 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 six. Adventure topics include covered wagons, cattle drives, trains and railroads, homesteads, early farming, and life in the cities.
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. To ensure personalized instruction, classes are kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10. However, this means classes fill up quickly, so don’t wait to register!
