Marine Science in Action - Rivers, Tidepools & Sloughs of the Monterey Bay Area (10-14)

ID : 13319   
« back to classes page

Field trips, road trips, scavenger hunts, and plenty of hands-on activities will put your new marine science skills to work throughout the Monterey Bay Area. Explore the intertidal zones at Point Lobos and Pigeon Point State Parks and learn to identify organisms and the adaptations necessary to live in that environment.. Develop your scientific observation skills by doing scientific drawings, and learn random sampling data gathering skills by building and working with a quadrat (a frame used to isolate and study the distribution of an item over a large area). Get a first hand look at the work being done by scientists in the Monterey Bay Area on your trips to the Seymour Marine Discovery Center and Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve. 
Campers will travel in Cabrillo College vans, driven by camp leaders, for all of the field trips. 

This is an active, busy week so be sure to wear clothes and shoes suitable for hiking and walking, bring a hat and sunscreen, and bring plenty of snacks, water, and lunch! 

Class size is limited, so Register Early!

Please read:  Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child is safe, healthy, and has tons of fun at camp!

  • Need help finding your child’s classroom? Campus maps are available here.
      • Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! No food is available on campus.
      • Please be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of to help your child have a successful week at camp.
      • Campers need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID every day.
      • In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff.
      • Cell phones or hand held games may not be used during camps.
