BJNC’s Tween Summer 2017 Wilderness Workshops

Your tween’s chance to gain valuable wilderness skills and knowledge is not far away! Bob Jones Nature Center educators will lead fun, inspirational Wilderness Workshops this summer specifically designed for 10 to 14 year olds.
Each workshop focuses on a skill necessary to survive independent of technology but also uses nature education apps and features to enhance your tween’s experience of the outdoors. There is no better place to impart these skills upon campers than in the Cross Timbers Ecosystem right here in Southlake, with its dense woodlands, savannas, prairies and diversity of wildlife.
