2022 Summer Science Camp - Instar: 4th & 5th Grades

August 23 - August 26, 2022

South Slough Reserve science camps provide kids opportunities for hands-on exploration of the outdoor world through investigation, science, art, and laughter. Activities vary from year to year.  Camp day and overall themes are planned to fit the abilities and interests of kids according to their grade in school. 

Camps have a minimum enrollment to operate, and a maximum enrollment based on vehicle capacity. Camp fees help with snacks, travel, supplies, tools, t-shirts and education intern stipends.

The Reserve is planning to offer science camps during the summer of 2022. Our goal is to operate as close to normal as possible, but there are still unknowns at this time. We will structure camps to ensure campers, staff, volunteers, and interns safety.*

Registration for summer '22 camps opens April 6, 2022.

Campers should sign up for the camp that matches the grade they will be entering in the fall of 2022.

Instar – 4th & 5th grade
August 23 – 26, 2022

9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

During Instar camp, children begin to dig deeper into science happening in the Reserve and explore beyond the Reserve to the other coastal habitats of our region. Campers conduct investigations in and around the estuary, beaches and upland forests. Campers will bring lunch, and snack is provided during the day. The activities and content are designed to match the interests of children entering 4th & 5th grades. 

$95 per camper
