The camp will be held Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM at The Longhorn Project aka Center for Agriculture, Science, and Engineering (CASE) on the premises of the NASA Johnson Space Center. Each camper will participate in lessons on longhorns, agriculture, horticulture, lab specimens, chemistry experiments, visual arts, culinary arts, and space exploration. Campers will learn to feed, walk, halter, and exhibit the longhorns. The horticulture lesson includes principles on the cultivation of plants, fruits and vegetables and basics of growing plants in a greenhouse. The space exploration lessons include a tour of the George W.S. Abbey Rocket Park & Saturn V Building and private tour of the Historic Mission Control. And much more!
The camp instructor is a certified teacher assisted by a high school-aged counselor. The cost is $315 per camper and includes a camp T-shirt and daily snacks. The Longhorn Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit education program that provides agricultural and STEM-curriculum to youth.
