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 Winter Day Camp

This winter, NHM invites your child to join us for Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp. Winter Camp is two, one day camps held at the Tar Pits Museum offered to kids grades K - 5. Camp gives kids the chance to mix the sciences with the arts! Unlike any other camp, we give hands-on experiences, as well as a creative outlet to all participants. It’s so much adventure, your child’s camp memories will surely last a lifetime.
