The Cibolo Nature Center's Nature Camp and Art Camp are state-licensed camps that provide children ages 6 to 12 with an opportunity for up-close, hands-on nature education or a chance to experience creating art based on the beauty of the outdoors. Both camps are held amid the Cibolo Nature Center’s 162-acre nature preserve bordered by Cibolo Creek in Boerne. Each of the Cibolo Nature Center’s summer camps takes place for five days with seven sessions beginning June 11 and ending Aug. 3. Session topics vary, so campers may sign up for more than one week. Early registration, Feb. 1-May 31, provides a discount in attendance fees. Those who sign up for more than one session receive additional discounts.
