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 visiting the Astronaut Training Facility at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, touring Galveston Bay on board the SEAGULL II with a marine biologist, and 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. Participants also experience stepping aboard a retired jack-up rig at the Ocean Star Offshore Drilling Rig and Museum, walking through hundreds of species of butterflies from around the world at The Cockrell Butterfly Center, learning about the Port of Houston from members of the U.S. Coast Guard, and looking through one of the largest public telescopes in the United States before working in teams to complete a simulated space mission.
