Class Description

When you are walking in the woods, and then happen to see any kind of wildlife, your heart seams to burst with joy and excitement. This camp will be a study on the two-legged, four-legged and the six-legged creatures that are in our area of North Texas.

Topics to be covered:

  • Learn about each of Texas' Wildlife symbols: Armadillo, Pecan, Monarch, Bluebonnet, etc.

  • Be able to identify the cautions in the woods (plant & animals)

  • Investigate what animals eat, where they live, and how they communicate

  • Recognize various kinds of animal tracks

  • Identify plants and learn their values

  • Explore birds and their habitats

  • Pond Fishing

  • Classify living things

  • Understand the laws that protect wildlife

  • Learn how chemicals affect the ecosystem

Each camper will need to bring a sketch book to create or add to an existing nature journal plus pencils, and any fishing gear that they have. Bring your own camping gear ie, tent, sleeping bag, water bottle, and lunches. Also, plate, bowl, mug, eating utensils (please no disposables). Dinner Saturday night and breakfast Sunday will be provided. Vegetarian Fare Available. Camp chairs, flashlights, camera, air mattress, and insect repellent are optional but nice to have. Also a musical instrument to play around the campfire. We have a swimming pond, so bring provisions if it is the warm part of the year.
