Follow in the footsteps of Texas artists, such as Frank Reaugh, Elisabet Ney, and Porfirio Salinas with daily art lessons. Step in the shoes of pioneers & legends such as Sam Houston, Annie Oakley, Jack Johnson, or Cabeza de Vaca in drama lessons. And, have fun in games and arts & crafts that reference frontier life, cowboy culture, and a pirate’s life based on the pirate history of Galveston Island. Guest speakers and reenactors will also visit with the campers to share their stories and inspiration.
