CEAD Camp 2015

Adventure, Science, Discovery, Friends, and Fun!  That’s what we’re all about this summer. 

Cross Timbers Eco-Adventure Day Camp (CEAD Camp) is summer camp with a difference!  All summer long, your child will learn about fascinating science topics through a hands-on, experiential learning based program with acres upon acres of cross-timbers wilderness to explore.  They will have the opportunity to make observations on the trail, share with their peers, ask questions, and search for answers.  

No summer camp would be complete without some fun ways to cool down though.  We break up the day with plenty of fun and games, water play, and always something artsy to pull it all together.

Plan on your children coming home with a smile on their face, leaves in their hair, quite possibly some grit in their teeth, and best of all…excitement about our ecosystem and the mind to pursue MORE! (not to mention, a very well exercised and mellowed out child at the end of the day).

Please check back soon for updates on CEAD Themes and start dates!
