Summer Camps

2022 Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center Camp

Secrets of the Swamp - Registration Activity #214180

Ever want to know about the unseen world around you? Join BREC’s Bluebonnet Swamp Summer Camp as we explore the secrets of the swamp – who lives underground, hangs out in the water, and comes out at night. 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.

Swamp Counselors in Training session 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 (May 31-June 3) and one day of skill evaluation the following week (June 6-10).
