Summer Camps

This summer, from June through August The Curiosity Lab is offering Outdoor Nature Adventure Camps that provide amazing experiences along the magnificent San Mateo Coast.

Each location has been carefully selected to bring a sense of wonder and joy. We start the day connecting with nature either hiking on a trail, discovering mountain creeks and waterfalls, exploring tide pools, marveling at redwoods, climbing over boulders or walking along a beach.

As we explore, we learn about ecosystems, local habitats, plant and animal adaptations, bugs, fungi, lichen and anything else we may encounter as we notice and note the beauty nature and place.

After lunch, it’s time for free play, exploration and making friends; splash in a creek, play a game, examine a bug, go on a scavenger hunt, build a sand castle, do an art project, fly a kite or just bask in the sun.

Children need to be at least 5 years old and able to hike at least 3 miles per day.
