WHAT: Parents who are looking for fun and enriching activities for their children during winter break should check out Houston Arboretum’s Winter Camp: Goosebumps & Mysteries, set for Jan. 2-4, 2019. Children will unravel nature’s mysteries as they explore creatures of the night, creepy crawlies and the folklore that surrounds them. They will learn about bats, owls and other mysterious creatures of the animal world. Live animal encounters, outdoor games, nature hikes, and lots of hands-on fun science activities are always a part of the Arboretum experience. The camp is recommended for “explorers” ages 4 to 12; children are taught in classes by age: (4, 5 – 6, 7 – 8, and 9 – 12).
Children who attend the full day should bring a lunch, along with water and a snack. Morning camp attendees are asked to bring water and a snack. Children will spend time both outdoors and indoors and should have outdoor clothing appropriate for the weather (coat, hat, gloves, etc.).
