2023 Fall/Winter Break Day Camp Class Schedule

Date Topic

 Beautiful Birds
 Terrific Trees  (camp date changed from 11/7 to 11/10 due to HISD calendar change)
 Radical Reptiles
 Texas Mammals
 Fall Nature

We are aware that HISD will also be out on 10/13, but that is the day of our VIP Early Access Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival for Wildlife Supporter Level Members and the day before our Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival weekend. Staff will already be stretched thin and the Center will be an event staging grounds leaving no classroom space available.  We are sorry we can not hold a camp on 10/13.
