SUMMER NATURE CAMP

Summer Nature Camp
June 5 – August 11, 2023

Studying science and history helps children to know and understand the world around them. The Museum offers your child 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.

Our facilities include classroom areas, the Discovery Room, and a 40-acre park, all used to enhance your child’s learning experience. Staff members are experienced teachers and, to ensure personalized instruction, classes are kept small, with a teacher to student ratio of 1:5. Classes fill up quickly, so register soon! For more information, please call (979) 776-2195.

  • Winter Mini Camp 2023: Train Travelers
    BVMNH’s Train Travelers Winter Mini Camp is an entertaining adventure all about the world of trains. Each day features interactive lessons, games, and crafts featuring trains. Join us as we explore the world of trains.
  • Monday, December 18: All about Trains
    Why do trains have so many wheels? How does a train stay on the tracks? We will answer this and more as we learn all about parts of a train, how some trains work, and the first railroad tracks.
  • Tuesday, December 19: Trains in History
    We will travel back in time to learn about the first railroads and when train travel was very popular. We will discover how trains changed over time and how railroads shaped towns, including Bryan/College Station.
  • Wednesday, December 20: Careers with Trains
    What goes on behind the scenes in the train world? We’ll explore some fascinating careers in the world of locomotives. From train conductors to signal engineers, we’ll examine the people who help trains travel, and how they stay safe around trains.
  • Thursday, December 21: Types of Trains
    Trains have come a long way since the first steam locomotive. Jump aboard as we travel through time to see a variety of trains throughout history. Why were steam engines, freight trains, passenger trains, and even circus trains created, and how did they work?
  • Friday, December 22: Trains Today
    Today, you can still ride on a vintage steam train at only 15 miles per hour. This is quite different from some modern trains that allow us to travel at more than 200 miles per hour! What new train technology helped make this possible? Join us as we learn about technological advances, famous trains in movies, the popular model train hobby, and more!
