Last year’s themes:

Mad Science

Campers will spend each day exploring a different aspect of the amazing world of science. They will participate in a variety of thrilling, hands-on experiments and activities to explore why things are not always what they seem. There will be slippery slime, exciting explosions, mysterious color changes, and stunts that seem to defy the laws of physics. After all, magic is just science in disguise!!

Hurray for Spring!

It’s a time for birds, bees, flowers and trees. Butterflies and color galore, freshness all around and more, more, more. Pollinators will play and dance, nectar in blooms and romance. Hurray I say, hurray for spring.

Everything is green, green, green!

Campers will embrace Spring by learning about pollinators and flowers and many things spring through creativity, learning, play, hands on experience and more.

Past, Present and Future

Campers will learn a little about the history of Earth and its animals through fossils. They will discover how those fossils contributed to todays fuels (fossil fuels) and why it is important to use less and less of them. Campers will learn about other sources of energy, and come up with creative ways to change the way we use energy in the future.

Back in the Day…

(After Camp, younger campers)

Each day campers will travel back in time to immerse themselves in ancient California Native American life.  They will listen to legends, play music, practice their “hunting” skills and enjoy authentic Native American games.  They will make a “talking stick” and a drum to take home.

In the footsteps of John Muir

(After Camp, older campers)

Did you know that more street names and landmarks in California are named after John Muir than anyone else? Campers will go back in time to 1838 and walk in the footsteps of Californian Naturalist legend, John Muir. After learning about the life of John Muir through his writings and journal entries, After Campers will learn wilderness survival skills, sneak up on squirrels and observe them, make lanterns, build forts, play games, float rafts, and write a small journal entry in Muir’s similar writing style.
