Junior Naturalist Camp at Madrona Marsh Nature Center and Preserve

Our week will rotate around group and individual activities that focus on different themes in nature such as sun energy, birds, insects, reptiles, plants and photography. Each child will receive a journal for recording observations. Each child will complete a project of their own choosing related to nature at the Madrona Marsh. Children will spend 10-20 minutes a day individually observing and journaling. Students will have the opportunity to partner with the preschool Friday Fun Class to practice being a naturalist. Each activity will help students grasp what it means to be a naturalist while practicing the necessary skills to become one. The program provides two instructors daily; a California Naturalist/Credentialed teacher, and guest leaders. A light lunch is included: prepackaged sandwich, fruit, chips and cookies. Water will always be available. Camp size is limited to 15 children.


Program cost is $170.00 Please make your check out to Friends of Madrona Marsh. To register, call the Nature Center at (310) 782-3989 Tuesday-Saturday.
