We’ll make some treats to share with the animals in our lives, either those at home or living in the world around us.

July 22 – 26: Safari
Let’s go on safari as we view Disney's new live-action Lion King, and learn about exotic animals through games and activities. The Texas weather can sometimes feel like Africa, but if it’s not too hot we’ll make a field trip to the Austin Zoo and come face-to-face with some real live exotic rescue animals.

Ahoy matey! Our crew sets sail to discover what a pirate’s life might be! Our journey will take us on a glass-bottom boat ride, plus we’ll explore nautical themed games and activities all week long. Learn how to turn trash into treasure with recycling projects. But be warned and take heed – things may get wet as ye walk the plank while traversin' our Seven Seas obstacle course! Aarrgghh!
Aug 5 – 9: Space Adventures
Blast off into orbit as we discover what it takes to be an astronaut, explore our solar system, and fight off alien invaders! Don’t forget your blaster (Nerf gun) as we journey to a galaxy far, far away and join in the epic battle against the dark side.
