Centennial Museum Presents Second Annual “Camp Discovery” – A Series of Summer Camps for Kids
This summer, the Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens is offering three educational and entertaining camps for children who will be enrolled in 4th, 5th and 6th grades this coming fall. The three camps will be offered in June, July and August. Choose one or enroll in all three for a discounted price.
Each camp is $40 for early enrollment and $55 after the early registration deadline (see deadlines below). Costs cover all camp supplies, T-shirts, daily snacks and a Friday Pizza Party. Register for all three camps by June 5 and pay only $100. Space is limited to the first 20 children for each camp.
All camps will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens on the UTEP Campus.
June 15 – 18: Digging Dinosaurs
Learn about the dinosaurs that once roamed this area and make your own “Dino Egg,” “Plaster Cast Dino Foot” and “Boxasaurus.” Other related activities will include making a volcano and taking a short hike of the UTEP terrain. Early registration deadline is June 5.
July 20 – 24: Culture Cruise
The Southwest has a rich history of indigenous people who lived on the land long before us. We’ll spend a week learning about these native tribes and the wonderful traditions that have been passed on through the generations. Campers will make yarn puppets, dream catchers, clay pots and even make their own drum – all with the help of local cultural experts. Early registration deadline is July 10.
August 17 – 21: Kaleidescope Kapers
It’s never too early to start caring about our environment. This camp is full of fun activities that will reinforce the importance of water conservation and solar energy. Participants will learn how to make their own soap and paper, play water bingo, and make fun crafts out of recycled materials. There’s also a solar oven activity to make snacks! Early registration deadline is Aug. 7.
