Change in Cost of Camp

For the first time in several years, I am raising the cost of my camp by $3 per week. If you have used Camp Vamonos! before, you know that I do not have extra charges or fees; when I take public transit with the kids, it comes out of my pocket. After recalling that Capital Metro raised the cost of bus fare recently, I have decided that I need to follow suit in order to cover that added expense. I apologize if you were expecting to enroll your child at the old rate. I feel the new rate, $158 per week, is still reasonable, and I hope my camp families will understand the need for the increase. Thanks!

Summer Happenings

We have some fun outings coming up this summer. Here’s a sample.


We’ll visit a farm in Manor where an artist and weaver spins the wool of her eight llamas. If it’s not too hot, we’ll take the llamas for a walk.






norwood-loomIn Round Rock, we’ll visit with a weaver who has lots of looms that campers will get to use. She will also give each camper a cardboard loom, show them how to work on it, and let them take it home.



didgeridooIn Austin, we will visit with a musician and actor and her collection of didgeridoos, and she will show you how to play them.

In addition to being out and about, we will be doing lots of fun things at the house this summer, like make paper, communicate by walkie-talkie, cook and bake (and eat!), play with our parachute, “soak” in the bathtub boat full of beans and lots more. And, of course, there will be lots of Spanish for your kiddo to soak up.
