This week at camp will be devoted to one of California's unique and exquisite treasures: the redwood forest. Through a series of exciting hands-on science lessons, we'll learn about the majestic trees that grace these forests and the special conditions that make this one of the few places in the world where these redwood giants grow. We'll also explore the other fascinating plant and animal inhabitants of the redwood forest, including the salamanders, banana slugs, owls, ferns, fungi and more. Each day, campers will make and take home two science projects and on Wednesday, we'll take a bus trip to Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. In addition to studying the redwood forest, we'll make fun art projects, play outdoors, create Lego structures, and watch science movies.
