We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Friday, June 17, 2022.
Summer Sessions: The Nature Camp team will be offering three, 1-week sessions: June 13th to 17th (Experienced), June 20th to 24th (Experienced), and June 24th to 30th (Advanced). The price for each 1-week session is $750. We are excited to again provide your child with the chance to experience the wild and urban beauty that surrounds us in the Bay Area, as well as a chance to grow through enriching outdoor biking and hiking adventures. All participants should be experienced bike riders with a multi-gear, non-electric bike who love being outdoors and learning about the places, plants, and creatures of the Bay Area. This is not a camp for beginning riders. Typically, each day will begin and end at South School and will last from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. Visit the Nature Camp website for more information.
