Natural Science Discovery Camp brings an awareness of the environment to participants, their connection to it, and what they can do to help protect it -- through hands-on experiential activities. Children returning from previous years give us faith that camp can provide a life-changing and meaningful experience. Our vision is that that the children we host over the summer become stewards for the environment, develop a sense of self and remember their time with us always.
Each week includes a Thursday night camp out at Andrew Molera State Park in Big Sur. Many of our campers have never spent a night outside, and there is always much excitement and anticipation.
Campers will:prepare their sleeping areas, enjoy a pasta dinner with salad and bread, clean-up, gather for s'mores, head out on a night hike: talking in hushed whispers or often walking in silence, campers listen to night sounds and gaze at the sky. Following a lesson on nocturnal animals and their adaptations, campers embark on a night hike for the short distance back to camp. They quietly and excitedly talk about their experience with staff and peers while preparing for bed - some campers choose to sleep in tents while others fall asleep under the open sky.
