300 Alamo Plaza
Dates: July 18– 22, 2016
If your 9-13 year old is into history or particularly interested in wearing those furry Davy Crockett hats, this camp is a great fit. Campers engage in the history of the Texas Revolution in conjunction with the Alamo, participating in historically accurate activities and learning what it’s like to live in Texas in the 1830’s—though this time around there’s air conditioning.
