SUMMER NATURE CAMP

Summer Nature Camp

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.  

A Note to Parents

The safety of our campers and staff is still our top priority.  As we shift back to our full day camps (9am-3pm) we will continue to take precautions where possible to ensure a safe and fun environment for our campers and our staff.

Summer Nature Camp 2022 updates:

  • Camp sessions are now full day camps (9:00 am-3:00 pm) with a before camp option starting at 7:50 am, as well as an after camp option until 5:15 pm. 

  • Prices will be $175/week for Members, and to $195/week for Non-Members

  • Masks for campers while indoors will be encouraged but not required 

  • Required masks for all staff while indoors 

  • Cleaning and disinfection efforts throughout the day 

  • Modifying drop-off and pick-up procedures (curbside pickup and drop off is encouraged) 

  • Maintaining a 5 to 1 ratio of staff to children to ensure safety 

  • We will encourage masks for our campers while indoors, but not required. We will do our best to spend plenty of time outdoors where masks will not be necessary. 

Further details will be sent to parents after their child’s registration is confirmed.  

With these procedures in places, we feel confident that we can host our Camp in a fun & educational way that will keep your children and our staff safe.  

 

If you have questions about your registration, and/or the changes to our Camp, please reach out to the Museum during business hours (Tuesday-Friday, 10am-5pm) at 979.776.2195  or email us at education@brazosvalleymuseum.org. Someone from our Education Team will be happy to assist you.
