Adventures in Nature | Natural History Museum of Los Angeles

Adventures in Nature Day Camp

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.
