Summer Day Camp Returns to Huntington Beach

Students can soak up the sunshine during outdoor activities this July with the return of summer camp at Shipley Nature Center in Huntington Beach. The 2022 Summer Day Camp program, hosted by Inside the Outdoors, is back in-person for little ones to explore nature while strengthening their science skills through new hobbies and crafts. 

Led by Inside the Outdoors program’s naturalists, the environmental education camp encourages children to foster their creativity and curiosity as they participate in games and experiments. Children ages 6 to 11 can be registered as campers for the weeklong day camp of their choice. For kids 12 to 17 years old, opportunities will be available for leadership roles through the camp sessions. 

The program offers four weeklong day camp options from July 5 through July 29 with activities tailored to different themes. The first theme, “Campology,” will feature tie-dye crafts, camp songs, games, and projects. The second week will allow students to meet animals and learn about the history of hunting and gathering through the theme “Adventures in the Wild.” During week three, “No Place Like Space” will teach campers through experiments and crafts as they explore the mysteries of the galaxy. 

The final week, themed “Camp Castaway,” will challenge campers in teams to compete with songs, skits, and games to test their outdoor skills. In addition, children from all weeklong camps will write daily nature journal prompts and go home with one of their crafts. 

Each day of camp will last from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for the first week, which begins on Tuesday. Campers who want to prolong their stay until 4 p.m can be signed up for the Extended Camp experience for an additional fee. Each week, kids will have the opportunity to learn songs, perform skits, play games, interact with live animals, make friends, and more. 

Parents can learn more about the program and register at  https://ocde.us/ito/Pages/SummerCamp.aspx.
