June 1 – July 24, 2020 (Monday – Friday 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.*)

At Camp Wildflower, children become conservationists, botanists, horticulturists, citizen scientists and ecologists as they explore native plants and the environment.

Activities include hikes, arts and crafts, nature games, science labs, outdoor explorations, and learning sessions with Wildflower Center experts. We know young minds need a lot of room to grow, and the Wildflower Center is the perfect place for getting in touch with nature and learning through discovery.

Summer camp is divided into three age groups: kindergarten and first grade; second and third grade; and fourth and fifth grade. Please enroll your child according to the grade level they will enter in fall of 2020. All campers must have completed some type of preschool. All campers must have completed preschool.

WEEKLY TOPIC DESCRIPTIONS

What makes a plant a plant and an insect an insect? Campers investigate with hands-on learning about gardens and soils and study the coexistence of flora and fauna. 
Let’s explore ecology! Campers will trek through the gardens to observe what makes Texas ecosystems diverse. After discovering habitats of different critters, campers will design their own habitat in our fort-building area.
Campers become sleuth in the natural world using microscopes, nets and their senses to interpret clues left by plants and animals. Examine tracks, scats bones, owl pellets and more.
Campers dive into the topic of aquatic habitats and ecosystems while developing water-conservation appreciation and skills.
Nature is a great teacher and gives campers many opportunities to feel peaceful and creative. We will build on those benefits with yoga and creative movement plus art with this new offering.
