Peace family, there are so many things in our community for kids to enjoy this summer!
Maria Lazo with Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History says they are offering all kinds of great topics each week, usually science or history-based. The first week kicked off with the topic of “Our Galaxy and Beyond,” where kids learned about outer space and astronauts.
Other topics throughout the summer include Wild About Nature (June 12-16), Young Engineers, (June 19-23), then the most popular week of the summer, which is Dino Discoverers (June 26-30). Kids will learn about dinosaurs, any animals related to them, and all kinds of amazing facts about dinosaurs.
Next is Crawly Critters (July 10-14), studying reptiles and insects, a week about primates called Monkey Business (July 17-21), one week called Legends & Lore (July 24-28), where kids will learn about magical lands and legends, as well as fantastic creatures, then a week called Animal Architects (July 31- August 4), which should be a great week for animal lovers, and Transportation Through Time (August 7-11), which looks at how trains, planes and automobiles have changed throughout history.
Finally, Summer Extension Day Camp (August 14—18), allows campers to register for a single day. Each day this week focuses on a different topic from the Magic School Bus Film Series: Decomposition (“Meet the Rot Squad”), Sound (“In the Haunted House”), Seeds (“Goes to Seed”), Cells (“Goes Cellular”), and Symbiosis (“Takes a Dive”).
Camp fees are $155/ week for members and $175/ week for non-members. Summer Extension Day Camp fees are $45/ day for members and $50/ day for non-members. Before-camp care runs from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at $25/week. After-camp care runs from 3:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. at $50/week. (Days can be prorated at $5/day or $10/day).
