Summer camps might be not be an option for everyone this year, but kids can still discover and explore the Galveston Bay virtually this summer thanks to the Galveston Bay Foundation’s Camp at Home and Wonders of Wetlands: Virtual Experience programs.
With three different camp programs, there’s something for everyone. Campers will engage in hands-on activities and discussions with Galveston Bay educators while they explore the wildlife, ecosystem, biodiversity and more of the Galveston Bay safely from their home. Weeklong sessions will include virtual learning with supplemental activities, explorations and family missions to complete outside of the live camp time.
Camp at Home programs include Bay Explorers for ages 9 to 12 and Bay Naturalists for ages 13 to 18. Bay Explorers meet from 9–10am Monday through Friday; and Bay Naturalists meet from 1–3pm Monday through Friday. Campers can choose from one of the following weeks for both programs: June 22-26, July 6-10 and July 13-17
All Camp at Home weeklong programs feature hands-on activities, zoom discussions, learning opportunities and animal encounters. The registration fee is $100 per camper. Each group is limited to 15 campers to allow plenty of opportunity for questions and interaction.
The Wonders of Wetlands: A Virtual Experience program is open to campers ages 5 to 8 worldwide. During the one-hour interactive workshop, campers will learn about the Galveston Bay wetlands through song, movement, crafts, animal encounters and story time. Campers can choose from one of the following one-hour sessions:
June 16: 9–10am or 1–2pm
June 18: 9–10am or 1–2pm
June 30: 9–10am
The cost for the Wonders of Wetlands program is $5 per child.
