Kids College to teach youngsters about wildlife in ‘Junior Naturalist’ camps

Students in Victoria College’s Kids College can get hands-on experience with wildlife from the Crossroads.

Victoria College will partner with the Texas Master Naturalist Mid-Coast Chapter to present a week of education and fun for children ages 5 to 12 with Kids College on June 24-27 at VC’s Emerging Technology Complex.

“We are excited to team with the Texas Master Naturalist Mid-Coast Chapter again to educate the children on the appreciation of our native wildlife,” said VC Workforce and Continuing Education Program Coordinator Mary Hardy. “Early registration is encouraged as we expect these classes to fill up.”

VC’s Kids College will feature two “Junior Naturalist” camps – one for ages 5-8 and one for ages 9-12. Both camps will be held in Room 304 of the Conference and Education Center.

The camp for ages 5-8 will be from 9-11 a.m., and the camp for ages 9-12 will be from 1-3 p.m. Students in both camps will learn how animals adapt to the environment; learn how to journal; discover why snakes, lizards and toads are vital to the local ecology; and learn about fishing and water safety on the final day at Ethel Lee Tracy Park.

The cost for each “Junior Naturalist” camp is $60.

Victoria College’s Emerging Technology Complex is at 7403 Lone Tree Road in Victoria.
