Volunteer Workshop
Saturday, February 3, 2018 / 10am - 1pm / Academic Building
Do you enjoy the outdoors?  Like to work with kids? Spend time helping others learn new things? We will tour the campus, discuss classes offered, talk about various ways volunteers can assist instructors, and have lunch.

As an Outdoor School (OS) Volunteer, you will assist the OS Instructors with educational activities based on STEM curricula. This includes indoor and outside classrooms, field trips, workshops, community outreach, and summer camps. This also includes helping restore and maintaining trails, as well as working in the Native Prairie Garden. By doing this, you will be helping hundreds of students learn about plants, birds, trees, wildlife, soil, recycling, geology, energy, rivers, streams, riparian areas, the dark sky, plus much more.

It is going to be a GREAT Spring and Summer at the Outdoor School. If you and /or your friends are interested in making sure our next generation of kids get to enjoy and respect the great outdoors like we do, come on out and help us teach them while having fun!

RSVP: So that we can prepare correctly, please let us know by February 1, 2018 that you will be joining us. Send an e-mail to outdoorschool.junction@ttu.edu.

Summer STEM Camp (5th through 8th grade students)
July 22–25, 2018

Kids experience a combination of learning and adventure during these activities:
aging a tree, astronomy, bird identification, casting a fishing rod, plant identification, composting, kayaking, wildlife tracking, hiking, tubing, water sampling, and low ropes course.

Why this camp? Most students lose at least one month of learning in the summer. Through STEM based hands-on adventures and fun traditional camp activities, your child will be better prepared for the next school year.

Cost: $500 per camper (includes all activities, food, and lodging.)
*Roundtrip transportation provided from Lubbock*
