Monday, June 19th - Thursday, June 22nd
Enjoy four days camping at beautiful Spring Lake in Santa Rosa, with hiking trails, a swim lagoon, and a lake for boating and fishing. One afternoon will be spent at Safari West where campers will experience a three-hour safari ride and walking adventure in a 400 acre animal preserve. On the safari drive they'll meet giraffes, gazelles, zebras, buffalo, wildebeests and more in the exotic African Savannah setting.
3rd - 4th Grade: Cosmic Overnight at Chabot Space & Science Center
Thursday, June 29th - Friday, June 30th
Blast off into an out-of-this-world experience exploring the outer realms of space! Slumber under the stars in the Chabot Planetarium and explore with hands-on workshops, telescope viewing and planetarium shows. This trip was such a success last summer that we've scheduled it again with new activities.
2nd & 3rd Grade: Memorial Park Camping Trip
Wednesday, July 5th - Friday, July 7th
This calm, cozy forest campsite is a great place for a first camping trip. Just seven miles from Pescadero, this wooded parkland offers a variety of hiking trails and is home to small wildlife, including banana slugs! Campers will learn to pitch their tents, help with meal preparation and enjoy classic camp projects such as T-shirt tie-dye, roasting marshmallows and making S'mores.
4th - 8th Grade: Camping and Water Fun at Clear Lake
Monday, July 17th - Friday, July 21st
Join us for an action-packed, fun-filled adventure at Clear Lake, home of the Pomo Indian tribes since 6,000 B.C., who used the tule plants growing in areas along the shore to build light, speedy canoes. This noble lake will be the setting for our own Dragon Boat Race, where campers will test the boats they engineered in teams during the week prior. In five days and four nights, campers will enjoy swimming, hiking, fishing, exploring, nature walks and informal soccer games on the grass near our tents. Taught by our experienced camping team, campers will learn survival skills and care for the environment amid full days of activities and local history. Clear Lake is the perfect place to get away from it all and get attuned to nature.
2nd - 3rd Grade: Aquarium of the Bay Sleepover
Wednesday, August 2nd - Thursday, August 3rd
Campers will sleep in crystal clear tunnels surrounded by sharks, bat rays and thousands of the bay's most fascinating inhabitants. This sleepover program offers a unique opportunity to discover the nocturnal habits of creatures that live in our local waters. We'll begin our experience with a fun-filled evening of naturalist-led activities including a behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium and the opportunity to touch what lives under the waves.
