Winter can be a wild time! Join the Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History this winter break to learn about the seasons, the weather, and how plants and animals adapt to survive the winter time. Explore nature, make art, and play with new friends while learning about local natural history.
Our experienced staff will promote meaningful experiences in nature and positive social interactions as we set out on outdoor adventures. Each day will involve outdoor nature exploration, hands-on learning, and related games and crafts. We will investigate insects and animals, study plants and the weather, and observe our ocean specimens. The week will end with an Open House to showcase all the interesting discoveries made at camp. Join us to build connections to nature and stewardship for our future!
Kids who participate in the Winter Wonders camp will leave with a sense of wonder and excitement for nature. They will be proud protectors of Santa Cruz’s natural treasures, ready to share their discoveries with their friends and family. Each of the three days will focus on a different theme that will guide a variety of art projects, science investigations, explorations, and games. “Leave no trace” ethics and safety in nature will be emphasized throughout the week so that campers will leave equipped with a better understanding of how to responsibly interact with the natural world.
