Spring Break Camps
For youth in Kindergarten – 2nd grade
This spring, youth in grades K-2 can participate in a variety of science camps designed to inspire the natural scientist in each child. Each day, campers will engage in activities with a different science theme. Our activities are designed to spark curiosity and guide campers toward finding out answers to their own questions. Kindergarteners will have a half-day camp schedule and 1st/2nd graders will have an all day camp schedule.

All About Animals
Animals need food, water and space in order to survive, and all have special adaptations for living within their environment. Get up-close with CuriOdyssey’s resident non-releasable animals and get a behind-the-scenes tour of our animal exhibits. Venture out into the park to observe and discover how animals find their food and how they protect themselves from becoming food.
CuriOdyssey “Do-It-Yourselfers” (DIY)
We combine science and engineering, and emphasize learning by doing. Campers will first take apart unused electronics such as VCRs, stereos or computer keyboards, then use various parts to design and build their own contraption. CuriOdyssey educators will provide guidance and support as we encourage creativity, invention and modeling in our young “Do-It-Yourselfers” (DIY).
Coyote Point Park is constantly being shaped by wind, water and people. Campers will look at the forces that make Coyote Point Park unique by going outside to explore different areas of the park, looking for evidence of wildlife, observing birds, and getting their hands dirty digging into the science of our earth. CuriOdyssey staff will encourage observation and help campers discover the answers to their own questions.
Outdoor Nature Play
So much learning happens when kids get unplugged and go outside. On this day, we foster what the campers do naturally: explore, observe, and create. Building a stick fort, climbing on logs and digging in the dirt will all be encouraged. Campers will also have the opportunity to create their own journal in which they can record their observations.
