Our 2016 Winter Break Day Camps
Monday, December 19 - Their Blood Runs Cold
Brrrrr. It’s chilly out! Let’s take a closer look at two groups of animals who have body temperatures that depend on the temperature around them, reptiles and amphibians. We’ll play games, make crafts, and have plenty of live animal encounters
Tuesday, December 20 - Investigating insects
Some creep, some hop, some burrow, some fly. You can find them almost anywhere you look on earth. They have been around for about 300 million years! Join us to learn more about incredible insects!
Wednesday, December 21 - Art in Nature
Come explore art in nature and nature in art, as we look at modern and contemporary artists and do what they did, in the natural setting of our park. Besides making art, we’ll play a few games, and learn about the plants and animals of the park.
Thursday, December 22 - Texas Mammals
Furry animals are still scampering about and making a living in our mild Texas winters. Learn about the various mammals of Texas, and the world, and what many of these warm blooded creatures are doing to survive and thrive in their habitats.
Friday, December 23 - Animals in Winter
Find out where animals go in winter. Does it matter what part of the world they live in? Do all animals hibernate or are some just less active?
Tuesday, January 3 - Texas Habitats - FULL - WAIT LIST STATUS
Come explore the various ecosystems of Texas, from ocean depths and beaches to the East Texas Hardwood forests and the Tallgrass Prairie. We’ll go outside and study the various habitats in the park, and get to the know what plants and animals make each habitat unique.
You can download and print our Camper Release Form here. All campers MUST have a release form signed by their parent or guardian before they are dropped off for camp.
Member parents, you may now register your kids for camp while logged in under your own member profile! You no longer have to log in as each individual child under their separate child profiles. Login once as yourself, and take the form as many times as you need to to register your kids! We hope this makes life a little simpler!
If you need assistance with registration, call 713-667-6550 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
