Get outside this summer to play and learn during our new Summer Family Camps! From garden crafts to bugs and wildlife tracks, our weekly family camps are sure to spark interest in all ages. Register for your favorite weekly themes, such as gardening, Texas rocks and water, or birding. Weekly camp programs will include thematic activities, arts and crafts, outdoor explorations, and lessons with Wildflower Center experts and guest speakers. 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.
Here's how this new camp program will work: Each week will feature a different theme, and camp will take place Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week from 9 a.m. to noon. Families will register with one adult present each day as a chaperone. Pricing is per youth for three days (nine hours) of science-based learning. Each youth registered will receive the materials required for all crafts and activities throughout the week. Space is limited and registration is required.
This class will take place in person at the Wildflower Center. Face masks are optional when attending this class. Please review our safety guidelines before your visit.
This week is for the investigative camper who looks for signs from past prehistoric life for clues to future life and habitats. Campers will explore prehistoric Texas and the remnants of the past that are still present at the Wildflower Center as they talk about climate and the effects of climate change on the plants and animals of Central Texas with weather experts.
