CSI: CITY SWAMP INVESTIGATION!
Join us this summer as we investigate the mysteries of the Swamp in the heart of our city. From the tiniest of our creepy crawly bugs to the grandest of our cypress trees, we will explore all the fascinating interactions that make our 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 session will continue with new opportunities for first-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 29-June 1) and one day of skill evaluation the following week (June 4-8).
*Some CIT groups will travel offsite for training sessions.
