Adventures in Nature

This Year, Give Your Child the World!

Adventures in Nature is a day camp offered every summer and seasonally throughout the school year. Children in grades K through 8 have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of Museum topics — Earth's features, creatures, and cultures from around the globe. Enroll your children in our hands-on, interactive classes and they will learn about fascinating topics through active encounters that spark children's natural curiosity and creativity.

All camps are from 9 am to 3 pm daily and are typically one week in length.

Adventures In Nature Spring Camp is two, single-day camps held at the La Brea Tar Pits Museum for kids grades K - 5. This camp offers a unique experience – a true mix of science and the arts. From hands-on activities, to a behind-the-scenes look at our latest research projects, to meeting real Museum scientists, join us for an adventure that will last a lifetime!
