Kids Spend Summer Days in Nature

May 29, 2018 08:12PM

 

Summer Nature Center Discover Camps For kids from 10 to 14 years old at Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve. All camps are from 1 to 4 p.m., and there are camps available for younger kids. Four, half-day outdoor Discover Workshops each focus on a different theme.

Week one is June 6 and is Eco-Citizens, where campers learn about edible plants and make jam from mustang grapes growing on the preserve. Week two is the writers’ workshop, where campers do journaling and experience the world of nature writing out on 70 acres of trails.

Week three, June 20 and 21, is Great Nature Games, where campers are taken through scenario-based games that will help them see life though the eye of some of Texas’ most impressive species. Week four, June 27 and 28, No Impact, will help campers learn to harness nature’s resources in a non-impactful way, such as harnessing the sun to cook and using recycled/reused materials to make eco-art.

The park is surrounded by 758 acres natural habitat with 20 miles of hiking trails on the preserve and the Walnut Grove National Recreation Trail. There is also a great pool to enjoy.

Location: 355 E. Bob Jones Rd., Southlake. For more information, call 817-491-6333 or visit bjnc.org.
