Summer 2023 Schedule

Messy Mud 1

June 19 - June 23 Bay mud is deep, it’s rich, it’s messy, and it’s super fun to explore! Over it, on it, or under it, we’ll discover a world of fascinating creatures from crabs to anemones to crazy-looking worms that live in our bay mudflats.
Survivor June 26 - June 30 Campers awaken their survival instincts as they forage for edible plants, build shelters, and get to know the plants, wildlife, and birds with whom we share the sanctuary. Together we'll honor and explore what it's like to be one with nature.
Bug Blitz * July 3, July 5-7

They aren't creepy, but they are crawly and so important! Campers learn all about the role insects play in our ecosystem! We’ll explore water, mud, and fields to see what we can find with our magnifying glasses! * Four day week due to holiday

COVID-19 Safety

All COVID-19 protocols will be in alignment with state and/or county mandates and may change at any time.

Before Drop-Off

If your camper's temperature exceeds 100.4 degrees, please stay home. If a camper experiences any COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, chills, body aches, fatigue, headache, nausea or vomiting, or if they come into contact with anyone who has traveled out of state, is being tested for COVID-19 or has experienced COVID-19 symptoms, they should also stay home.

Masks and Social Distancing

We will not be requiring campers to wear a mask. However, you are always welcome to send your camper with one. Maintaining 6 feet of space between campers will be prioritized when eating lunch. All activities will take place outdoors.

Stable Groups

To minimize potential spread, campers will remain within a stable cohort with the same Naturalists.

Cleaning

All surfaces and equipment will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Campers will be required to wash their hands before eating and after using the bathroom.

FAQs

Food

We ask that campers bring their own waste-free lunches and snacks and a resusable water bottle.
