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 unknown at this time. We will structure camps to ensure campers, staff, volunteers, and intern’s 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.

Camps target the abilities and interest of children entering 6th, 7th & 8th grades. $100 per camper
