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.
Kick-off the summer fun with our first week of Summer Family Camp! This week campers will investigate gardens and soils with hands-on learning and study the coexistence of flora and fauna. Explore plant characteristics, life cycles and habitats as they hike through our gardens. Campers will also get their hands dirty as they create their own native plant container garden for their home to support pollinators.
