Summer Camps

2021 Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center Camp

Networking with Nature - Does your camper need to unplug from a screen and reconnect to nature? Join BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Summer Camp as we explore connections with the world around us – from learning about life cycles to predator-prey interactions and more! Age-specific, thematic 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. Field trips are generally scheduled twice a week, including for Swamp Squirts sessions, but may not be offered in 2021 due to COVID.

Swamp Counselors in Training sessions will continue with new opportunities for first, second and third 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 (June 1-4) and one day of skill evaluation the following week (June 7-11).
