2018 Spring Break Camp

Spirit of West Texas

Every Texas History Month Sibley is visited by the Spirit of West Texas who teaches us lessons from Texas's past. We always learn so much from these visits that we want to share them with 3rd-5th graders in Midland and Odessa.

Campers follow clues left by the Spirit of West Texas to discover a week of spinning wool, cooking over campfires, whittling toys, and learning how Texas History still helps us today.

Camp Structure

Monday, March 12: Surviving West Texas

West Texas can be a dangerous place when you aren't prepared. The Spirit of West Texas will show us how they survived in the 1800s, so we can be prepared for any modern emergency

Tuesday, March 13: Founding Foods

Where does food come from when you don't have a grocery store, and how do you cook it when you don't have an oven or microwave? The Spirit of West Texas will show us how we can Texify our food

Wednesday, March 14: Pioneering Fun

Fun is something that every human needs in their life, even people from the 1800s. The Spirit of West Texas will help us discover how creating our own fun can be more satisfying than anything you might buy

Thursday, March 15: Prairie Neighbors

You have got to work together if you are going to survive in West Texas. Trading, compromising, and sometimes fighting the Spirit of West Texas will help us learn from the successes and failures of Texans in the 1800s.
