Natural Discovery

Summer 2018 Workshops

Looking to have a blast outdoors, learn a little bit about nature, make new friends, and still have half the day left to spend at the pool? This summer, Bob Jones Nature Center will host four half-day outdoor workshops designed specifically for 10-14 year-olds. Each workshop focuses on a different theme, so be sure to sign up for the topics you are most interested in!

Week 1 – Eco-Citizens (June 6-7)

Eco-Citizens workshop at BJNC will be a fun introduction to selected topics in conservation, sustainability, and Leave No Trace. Our campers will learn about how they can make a positive impact at home and in their communities all while doing fun science projects and playing eco-games.

Week 2 – Writer’s Workshop (June 13-14)

Nature has been one of the greatest sources of inspiration for many of history’s most famed authors and poets. Rather than read and study in an isolated classroom space, we will do fun journaling activities and experience the world of nature writing out on our 750 acres of trails.

Week 3 – The Great Nature Games (June 20-21)

In order to survive in the wild, animals have developed amazing adaptations – outer body coverings that protect against the cold, sensory abilities to help detect predators, and camouflage, to name a few. This summer workshop will take you through a number of scenario-based games that will help you see life through the eyes of some of Texas’ most impressive species. 

Week 4 – No Impact (June 27-28)

This week, we will learn how to harness nature’s resources in a non-impactful way. On day one, we will focus on harnessing the sun to cook food and power a mini model car, while on day two, we will use recycled and reused materials to make the ultimate eco-art project.
