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.




Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp

This winter, NHMLA invites your child to join us for Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp. Winter camp is a two-day camp held at the Natural History Museum on January 3 and January 4, 2019, and offers kids in 1st - 4th grade the chance to discover nature through photography by exploring the Museum’s traveling exhibition, Wildlife Photography. Unlike any other camp, we give a hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience, as well as a creative outlet to all participants. It’s so much adventure, your child’s camp memories will surely last a lifetime.


Registration will open on Novemeber 5, 2018.
