2024 BMGA Kids Kamp – Austin County

June 25 - June 27

$35.00

Austin County Kids Kamp registration is now closed with a full class. 

 

The Bluebonnet Master Gardeners, in conjunction with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, are pleased to announce our 7th year of holding Kids’ Kamp in Austin, Colorado, Fayette, and Washington Counties.  This kamp is designed to be educational and fun with the goal of igniting a passion in the youth of our area to the importance and enjoyment of gardening through unique experiences.

 

This year, the kids will (1) experience hands-on plant propagation; (2) be introduced to all kinds of herbs, including learning how herbs make our food tasty and delightful; (3) plant and take home their own herb garden, and (4) learn about some common garden visitors… purple martins, moles, gophers, armadillos, and snakes!  Kampers will be able to see (and touch) some of these critters at kamp!  As always, we’ll have outdoor activity time, nourishing snacks, and lots of fun!

 

Kamp runs for 3 days (Tuesday -Thursday) from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon on these dates:

  • Washington County – June 4th to 6th (Washington Co. Expo Event Center)
  • Colorado County – June 11th to 13th (Weimer Civic Center)
  • Fayette County – June 18th to 20th (Fayette Co. Extension Ag. Building)
  • Austin County – June 25th – 27th (Immaculate Conception Catholic Church Parish Hall)

 

The cost is $35.00 (plus processing fee) per child.  Kids ranging from 10-13 years of age will be eligible to register for these 3-day kamps but space is very limited, so register early!  Kids Kamp is staffed by experienced educators, volunteer Bluebonnet Master Gardeners and Interns.

 

Registration forms can be completed online at https://txmg.org/bluebonnet/kidskamp/
