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

In order to ensure the safety of your children and our staff, the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History, after careful consideration, has changed Summer Nature Camp 2020 to a half-day program.  Weekly themes are unchanged, but camp fees have been reduced.​​

Summer Nature Camp 2020 updates:

  • Camp sessions are now half-day camps (9:00 am-12:00 pm).

  • The first week of camp, June 1-5, Microscopic World, has been cancelled.

  • All camp sessions will be reduced to half capacity, approximately 5 students per age group. 

  • Prices are reduced to $100/week for Members, and to $120/week for Non-Members.

  • We are following CDC recommendations regarding Youth Programs and Camps.

  • New Safety procedures include:

    • social distancing

    • intensifying cleaning and disinfection efforts throughout the day

    • modifying drop-off and pick-up procedures

    • screening procedures upon arrival for both staff and campers

    • maintaining an adequate ratio of staff to children to ensure safety

    • requiring staff to wear face coverings 

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

 

Our camp instructors sincerely regret that the COVID-19 pandemic does not allow us to conduct this year’s Summer Nature Camp as we have in the past.  However, with these new procedures in place, 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.

 

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. Thank you so much for your support of the Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History.

 

Sincerely,

Museum Education Team
