Children in grades 1-2 and grades 3-5 can learn a lot about the Ice Age, about keeping our bodies cool and all about water during three separate weeklong summer camps at the Witte Museum in July and August. All three camps have a “coolness” theme that ties them to the Witte’s new “Discover the Ice Age” exhibit that began in May and continues through Sept. 7.
Frozen: Stories of the Ice Age – The new Ice Age exhibit comes to life through fi ve days of explorations in science and history. Two camp options: July 6-10 and Aug. 3-7.
Cool Down, Chill Out! – This camp focuses on learning how to keep cool during the hot Texas summer and learning the right recipes to help make that happen. Participants will spend time in the H-E-B Body Adventure and in the Demonstration Kitchen. Two camp options: July 13-17 and July 27-31.
Cool, Cool Water: Life by the River – Learn science, history and geography while understanding the “coolness” of water and what is needed to keep it clean, safe and healthy. One camp option: July 20-24.
Adventure camp begins at 9 a.m. and and ends at 5 p.m. each day. Participation for the full week is $230 for non-members and $180 for museum members. Daily participation is $55 for non-members and $45 for museum members. To participate, call 210-357-1910 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
