​South Slough Summer Science Camps

Camps offer hands-on activities in the estuary with a focus on natural history and outdoor exploration. Campers bring their own lunch, but a snack is provided during the day. Camps are designed to fit the abilities and interests of campers according to the grade they will be entering in the Fall of 2017. 

This year Summer Science Camps will run three days, Wed-Fri rather than four as in previous years. There is a slight reduction in cost to account for the shorter time frame. All fees include snacks and a t-shirt and help cover the cost of instructors.
