2018 Summer Camps at Sibley

Our popular Summer Camps have returned for another year! This year we have our Wild Science Camps for students entering 4th - 6th grade during the first two weeks of June, and our Growing from Nature Day Camps are for campers entering K - 3rd grade on Wed. and Fri. of July and August. Read below for more information and how to register. 

WILD SCIENCE CAMPS

During the month of June Sibley offers two Science based camps for students entering the 4th - 6th grade. These 4 day long camps are from 9a.m. to noon, and offer campers the opportunity to discover more about the plants and animals of West Texas. Campers get messy collecting specimens, making observations, using scientific tools, and working with ACTUAL SCIENTISTS.

Secret Agent Scientists

Science Headquarters needs your help to save animals and habitats! Agents complete a new mission each day using top-secret science gadgets and a nature spy notebook. For your final mission, a Special Agent from Texas Parks and Wildlife will test your skills. You will help this Special Agent trap and band live doves! Report to Sibley Nature Center to become a Secret Agent Scientist. Register Here.
