Full Day Camp for 1st-3rd graders
Experience CSI science, sling shots, live animal encounters, solids and liquids and more this winter with CuriOdyssey’s single day Winter Camps. Each day features an engaging science theme, and you can sign up for just one day or all four. Museum educators and camp staff guide and inspire campers to think creatively, be curious, and draw on lessons learned through their own observations and discoveries. Come and join us on an up close and personal science adventure! Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.

December 23, 2013  CSI (CuriOdyssey Science Investigators)
First-third graders will become CSIs, gathering facts, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions to solve science mysteries. Campers will use forensic science as a means to solve a special “whodunit” challenge. They will also investigate skulls to determine animal diets, use X-Rays to see skeletal structure, and observe Dermestid beetles that are periodically used by forensic scientists.

December 26, 2013  Adapted for Survival
All animals need food, water, a means to reproduce, and space in order to survive. This day camp will examine the special features of CuriOdyssey’s animals to better understand their own strategy for survival. Live animal encounters, examination of biofacts, making diets, and testing the animals’ senses through enrichment are just some of the activities they will participate in to discover how certain animals are adapted for survival.

December 27, 2013  Intrepid Investigators
Rock climbing, way finding, and making sling shots are all activities in this day of camp based on outdoor play. Campers will discover how science plays a role in building a rope ladder with tree branches (gravity, weight, and forces) and other fun activities. This day of camp looks closer at the science behind the activities we did naturally as kids.

December 30, 2013  Coyote Point Explorers
Did you know that Coyote Point Park was once and island? On this day, campers will explore the natural features of Coyote Point Park. Measuring the tide at the beach, looking under logs in the field, and finding a wide array of rocks are featured activities in this camp day that highlights the natural features that make Coyote Point Park a unique treasure on the Peninsula.
