Daily Activities: 

Below is a sampling of just some of the awesome activities your child will get to experience!

  • "Museum Mystery Monday:" Campers will be introduced to the museum where they will search for clues to history's mysteries. Activities will include getting a behind-the-scenes look at how artifacts are used in a museum.

  • "Talk to a Texan Tuesday:" "Just the facts!" Campers will get hands-on experience in what it is like to interview "witnesses" of history.

  • "Work it Wednesday:" Campers will let their inner artist out and WORK on their very own exhibit. Activities include working with museum staff on creating an eye catching exhibit.

  • "Thirsty for a Story Thursday:" Museums tell us stories through exhibits, interpretations, and programs. Using what was learned during the week, campers will create their own way to tell a story.

  • "Fun Friday:" Campers will put on their own museum program and showcase everything they have done throughout the week in the form of an exhibit opening for friends and family!
