Join KIDS for the BAY for a fun-filled summer of hands-on science and nature exploration in the outdoors!
KIDS for the BAY Summer Camp 2015 is now in session for children aged 5-10 years until mid-August. Campers will take full advantage of the amazing natural spaces in our own backyard by exploring bay and ocean shorelines, including Muir Beach and Angel Island, hiking along beautiful creeks, studying insects in ponds and kayaking on the bay. Drop-off and pick-up locations are in the Berkeley area. Register now before spaces fill up.
For the past 23 years, KIDS for the BAY has taught hands-on, environmental science to children and teachers through creative on-going programs that give students powerful reasons to connect with and care for the environment.
