Adventure comes to life at Blackwood during the summer. Nature Camp is a week-long overnight camp for ages 8-14 located in Hempstead, TX.
Blackwood’s goal is simple: get kids outside and active!
Campers enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, swimming, paddleboarding, and forest games. They take classes like natural dyeing, cane-pole fishing, and cooking. They learn about wildlife in workshops hosted by local experts, and go on educational field trips to places like St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary and Huntsville State Park. At night, they stargaze, tell stories, and roast s’mores by the campfire.
Campers learn about nature, animals, sportsmanship, camaraderie, and build lifelong friendships. With the support of highly trained counselors, they’ll explore the wilderness and discover what secrets and wisdom the forest has to tell. This life-changing week of adventure offers children the opportunity to build a relationship with nature and safely explore the great outdoors.
