The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History announces Summer Nature Camp from June 9 through August 22. Open registration begins May 6.
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 know and understand the world around them. The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History 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 the 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 children’s learning experience. Staff members are experienced teachers and, to ensure personalized instruction, classes are kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:10. Classes fill quickly, so do not wait to register.
This year’s weekly themes include: Texas tribes; wild about wildlife; the ice age; life on a farm; chemistry 101; dynamic dinos; ancient Greeks and Romans; the great outdoors; junior detectives; and an amazing race.
Regular admission to the Museum and the Museum’s permanent galleries and traveling exhibits is $5 for adults; $4 for children, students, and seniors. Members and children 3 and under are free. The Museum, located in the Brazos Center on Briarcrest Drive, is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 5pm.
