Register for 2017 Summer Camps

Camp is for children ages 5-12.  This is a state licensed camp where all counselors are trained in first aid and safety as well as the ecosystems of the park. Kids can choose from two different ½ day camps that focus on either nature or art; or they can participate in both for a full day of adventures and fun!  Beginning in 2017, we will have four separate weeks of Adventure Camp at the Herff Farm as well.

If you are interested in applying for a scholarship for nature, art or adventure camp, a regular camp application as well as a scholarship application will need to be submitted. These will need to be hard copy applications. Scholarships are available in limited quantities.  Please contact Stephanie Colvard via email or you can call her directly at 830.331.8596 regarding applying for scholarships.

Nature Camp
Nature Camp occurs June 19th through August 11th, Monday through Friday, 9:00 am-1:30 pm. Join us for eight awesome, fun-filled weeks of adventure as we discover amazing creatures, learn wilderness skills, fish, get up close and personal with some slithering reptiles, beat the heat and swim in the creek, learn to farm and get primitive at the Cibolo Nature Center. We will have a blast this summer with our traditional camp games, songs, skits, crafts, and a new special guest each week! At the conclusion of each camp, parents are invited to a celebration picnic where campers present what they’ve learned. 

Art Camp
Art Camp occurs June 19th through August 11th, Monday through Friday, 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm. Seven full weeks of fun! Create art with nature! Draw, paint, weave, collage, sculpt, and make prints just like Monet, Michelangelo, and Da Vinci! Become inspired and imaginative as we teach you to pull from the beauty of the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm to create nature-themed works of art! At the conclusion of each camp, parents are invited to an art show where campers present what they’ve created.
