Our annual Summer Camp is now under way. Spots are still open for next week's session from June 27th - July 1st. This year, "Gifts from the Earth: Discovering Nature's Bounty" focuses on all the little things that nature produces and how we are able to use them in big ways.

These sessions are designed to allow children to explore facets of nature that are often overlooked. Our grounds feature several habitats for campers to explore as they discover the value of making the most of what nature offers. At the end of the week your child will be an expert in the desert, woodlands, rainforests and California native plant ecosystems and what they provide.

This is a once in a lifetime experience for your child, with spots still open in our 2nd session from June 27th to July 1st.

For more information, please call (657) 278-3407.

Prices for each child are as follows:
Members: $95/first child. $80/per additional children.
Nonmembers: $105/first child. $90/additional children.
