June Summer Camps! 

If you are looking for our Youth Day Camps keep scrolling down this page!

Sibley is unveiling two new Summer Camps this June for students entering 4-6 grade! We have a new version of our popular Bug Camps called Arthropod Adventures, and our new Citizen Science Camp

Camps are Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and are $60 per child for Sibley members and $80 for non-members. For more information call Jeremy Clothier at (432) 684-6827.

Citizen Science Camp 

You don’t need a PhD or a lab coat to be a scientist. There are thousands of projects that scientists need your help completing. Take part in several of these exciting projects, and discover the scientist within! Identify birds, search for ladybugs and grasshoppers, become a Texas Naturalist, map habitats with a computer, and much more. 

Session I: June 5 – 8  Register here       

Session II: June 19 – 22 Register here 

Arthropod Adventures

Arthropods make up over half of all living animals and include insects, spiders, and their kin. Each day will include time in arthropod labs learning about arthropods, and time in the field studying real life insects. Labs include insect/human relations, the unique insect body, and insect behavior. Field sessions focus on observing dragonflies, butterflies, beetles, spiders, etc.  No arthropods will be harmed or collected.
