After breakfast at the camp lodge, Lone Star Leaders kick-off each day of camp with a new leadership skill in morning leadership groups. Then it's off on the charter bus to experience exciting and fun Texas sites all over the Houston/Galveston area! Many of the sites tie-in with the leadership skill of the day. And, most lunches and dinners are at restaurants, which the Leaders love!
Houston/Galveston camp highlights include touring Galveston Bay on board the SEAGULL II with a marine biologist, visiting mission control for the historic Apollo 11 trip to the moon at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, interacting with endangered plants and animals at Moody Gardens, ascending nearly 500-feet on an elevator ride to the observation deck of the San Jacinto Monument commemorating the final battle of the Texas Revolution, imagining life as a sailor on board Battleship Texas which took part in some of the most significant battles during both world wars, and walking through hundreds of species of butterflies from around the world at The Cockrell Butterfly Center. The week concludes with an overnight stay at the George Observatory with stargazing through one of the largest public telescopes in the United States and working in teams to complete a simulated space mission.
