The San Diego Natural History Museum, the NAT, gives families another reason to love winters in San Diego. Eager scientists don't have to wait until summer to go camping. Winter camps are available at theNAT starting December 23, 2013.
This new winter camp program provides numerous opportunities for kids to explore the natural world. Day camps are geared toward students from 1st through 5th grade with subject matter ranging from dinosaurs to fossils, reptiles to nature walks. Week long camps include subjects of dinosaurs, animals and all of Balboa Park. Each day the camps run from 9a.m. until 4p.m. which provides working parents flexible hours as well as good long hours for non-working parents who may want a winter day for some self-time. The winter camp schedule can be found here.
Discounts are provided for members of the NAT, though non-member prices are reasonable due to numerous grants provided by the Rice Family Foundation, Qualcomm, SDG&E, and the Walter and Betty Zable Foundation.
The San Diego Natural History Museum has a mission to interpret the natural world through research, education and exhibits; to promote understanding of the evolution and diversity of southern California and the peninsula of Baja California; and to inspire in all a respect for nature and the environment.
