Summer Camps at CBEC, June 16-August 29

Picture this: your kids spending the summer in the sun, exploring the Bay, hiking trails, and meeting friends new and old, all while learning about the environment through a “hands-on, feet-wet” approach that makes learning seem more like playing. Sound good? Explore day camps offered at CBEC!

Most sessions open to campers who are currently in grades K-6, with specialty sessions for preschool (ages 4-5) and older (grades 3-8) campers. Volunteer opportunities for anyone 16 years or older.
