Get ready for an out of this world summer camp. Chabot Space & Science Center’s “Mars Adventure” summer camps for students entering Grades 1-6 will be held in six one-week sessions June 25 through August 3 at the Center, on its 13-acre grounds and adjacent Redwood Park. Each day of camp will be full of fun, exciting science activities, engineering challenges, and outdoor exploration, woven into a week-long mission to rescue a scientist stranded on Mars. Science educators will lead the one-week camp missions, launching June 25- August 3. The cost for each camp session is $550 (members receive a discount). Before and after-care are available.
Campers will work in teams to tackle challenges, including surviving in space, landing on Mars, exploring the planet, communication, and search and rescue. The entire camp gathers each morning for the Daily Briefing- a time for groups to report on their progress and to receive additional information critical to the mission. Then campers navigate a range of indoor and outdoor activities led by Chabot instructors. The camp will take place inside Chabot’s science labs, classrooms, and museum spaces as well as outdoors in Redwood Regional Park.
