« back to classes page

Starfish, goats, and banana slugs - what do they have in common? They can all be found right here in the Monterey Bay Area! Through three field trips to the beach, the redwoods, and a local farm, you will have the opportunity to learn about the plants and animals that call them home. On each field trip you will practice scientific sketching, learn incredible animal facts including keystone species and habitat protection, and farm animal care. You will experience why our home, and its varied animals, are so amazing! At the end of the week, you will take home your sketchbook, field guides, a variety of creative projects, stories to tell about your adventures, and a brain full of local knowledge!
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 and water!

Register Early! Camps are limited to just 14 students!

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.
      • Campers are not permitted to use the vending machines during camps.
