Summer Camps

BREC's Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center

20 Years of Swamp Fun! Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center continues its yearlong celebration of providing 20 years of swamp fun with a summer full of magic, myth and charm as we take a whimsical look at what makes Bluebonnet Swamp so special. Age-specific activities are developed to keep campers having fun all day long as they interact with live animals, go on outdoor hikes, play games and make unique nature crafts. Fun snacks are provided in the afternoons, but campers should bring a bag lunch and drink each day. Camp sessions are available for children ages 5-17, and field trips are scheduled twice a week for all camp sessions, including Swamp Squirts.

Due to popularity of the program, Swamp Counselors in Training sessions will continue with new opportunities for first, second, third and fourth year CITs to gain skills needed to work as counselors at Bluebonnet Swamp. Topics focus on camper management techniques, leadership training and activity development, as well as job seeking skills to provide valuable experience for potential employment opportunities in the future. The Swamp CIT registration fee includes four days of training (May 30-June 2) and one day of skill evaluation the following week (June 5-9).
