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.

This spring, we celebrate the achievements of women in paleontology by inviting you to join us for a special “girls in science” version of Adventures in Nature camp– How Girls Museum. How Girls Museum is a three-day camp for girls Grades 3-6 held at La Brea Tar Pits.
La Brea Tar Pits is a treasure trove of fossils that tell us about the past, and is a great place for girls to pursue their interest in paleontology by learning from our stellar female scientists! Come explore your future as a scientist by discovering the past!
