Enjoy FREE Family Summer Workshops at Bass Pro Shops

Start Your Adventure at Bass Pro Shops 

At Mommy University we are always looking for new opportunities to encourage our children to enjoy and appreciate nature. We take our kids on hikes, fishing and camping which stimulates their interest in the great outdoors. Bringing children to spaces like nature centers and science centers also promote this interest. A hidden location, however, to spark this interest is the Bass Pro Shops.

Bass Pro Shops are the destination to pick up camping and fishing supplies; however, they have been offering family activities that also foster an appreciation in young children. This summer, Bass has released the 2017 Family Summer Camp schedule which runs from June 24 until July 23! The Camp includes free workshops every Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Children will receive a pin for each workshop they attend that they can attach to the free lanyard they will receive. For successfully completing all six workshops, attendees will receive a special pin.

Wait, there’s more! As well, on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, there will be special crafts that children can complete. There are also free games for children to try out from 12-5 pm on these days in the Game Area. Bass Pro Shops offers families one stop FREE Summer Camp!
