Summer Science Camp 2019

Sonoma Ecology Center's Science Camp provides children with the opportunity to learn about science and connect with nature through adventure, exploration, and hands-on activities. Campers will make new friends, develop new skills, and work with a highly qualified staff of professional educators and naturalists. There will be five sessions of camp offered this year, from backpacking camps to favorites like Creek Camp and Harry Potter Camp. Camps are based at either Sugarloaf Ridge State Park or Sonoma Garden Park and are offered for a wide range of ages.

SEC members qualify for a $40 discount per camp, per child. Registration and pricing at sonomaecologycenter.org/summer-science-camp/.

Wonder Camp comes to Sonoma

The Children's Museum of Sonoma County is expanding to Sonoma this summer with a three-week Summer Wonder Camp program at the Presentation School in Sonoma, in addition to its Wonder Camp Program held at the Children's Museum campus in Santa Rosa. Wonder Camp at the Presentation School will run June 17-21, June 24-28, and July 8-12.

Children's Museum Summer Wonder Camps are a blend of art and science, providing an immersive and hands-on experience with just the right mix of learning and adventure for ages 5 to 8.

Campers enjoy a variety of activities ranging from science, technology, engineering, art, music, drama and more. At the end of each week, parents and caregivers are invited to an open house, performance or art show. Each Thursday, campers will take a field trip to the museum campus in Santa Rosa for the day. Scholarships are available.

Pre-K through eighth grade STEAM camps

Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) is partnering with Camp EDMO, a leading Bay Area non-profit, to host its award-winning STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) summer camps. Kids will develop their creative capacity, unleash their inner scientists and technologists, and plumb the mysteries of the natural world. Sessions, at both the Santa Rosa and Petaluma campuses, range from space exploration to maker activities, Roblox coding and game building, animation technology, robotics, application of the scientific method, and more. Each camp location offers four levels of age-appropriate curriculum for campers ranging from preschool through eighth grade, while weaving in games, songs, crafts, sports and other fun camp activities. It also offers a Leader-in-Training Program for youth entering ninth grade and above. Sessions run June 3-July 19 in Santa Rosa and June 3-July 12 in Petaluma.
