Camp Themes

Art Inventors

Get inspired with DIY, test your tinkering determination, and explore nature in Art Inventors, an all-day outdoor camp for creative kids. This camp is a blended exploration of life and physical sciences with outdoor adventures and inspiration from meeting the soil, bugs, birds, trees, and more found in the surrounding park. We’ll think like engineers as we observe and explain the science behind our mixed-media art projects that combine sticks, rocks, paper, and pigments. With wearable and watchable art, campers will have a chance to unleash their creativity in expressing newfound discoveries. The result is a fun, messy experience that is sure to delight!

Gadgets & Gizmos

Whizz! Bang! Splat! Design and launch rockets, create a roller coaster for marbles, and map sun spots! Campers explore electricity, find out about flight, and play with chemistry. This camp is all about physical science and the engineering process. This outdoor engineering camp focuses on experimenting, perseverance, discovering how things work and why sometimes they don’t. If your child likes tinkering with gadgets and gizmos, this is the camp for them.

Junior Keepers

Do you have an aspiring future zoo keeper at home? If so, Junior Keepers camp is the perfect fit, with the chance to spend time outdoors in the natural habitat of some our local animals! Students will get to experience a part of the day in the life of a zoo keeper which includes observing and gathering data on animals, making diets, creating animal enrichment and understanding and advocating for animal conservation. There will be several close encounters with animals that call CuriOdyssey home.  Junior Keepers camp will inspire in youth preservation of the natural world.

Nature Quest

This outdoor learning camp will combine the most awesome parts of science, nature, and adventure to create a rich, memorable, and just plain fun experience for campers. We will explore outdoors to discover the forces that shape our earth and follow our individual curiosities while adventuring in Coyote Point Park. This active camp is perfect for kids itching to get outside and discover science and nature through playful explorations of the world around them. Campers surely will be impacted by the opportunity to connect to the outdoors in their nature quest!
