Summer Camp Information 2017

Find the kids something fun to do this summer! New camps added to the list daily!

South Slough Summer Science Camps

All fees include snacks, a t-shirt and help cover the cost of instructors:

  • August 16 to 18 | 9 am to 2 pm | Megalops Camp (grades 2 & 3) | $65

Camps offer hands-on activities in the estuary with a focus on natural history and outdoor exploration. Campers bring their own lunch, but a snack is provided during the day. Camps are designed to fit the abilities and interests of campers according to the grade they will be entering in the Fall of 2017. Registration is available online.

This year Summer Science Camps will run three days, Wed-Fri rather than four as in previous years. There is a slight reduction in cost to account for the shorter time frame.

*The Friends of South Slough Inc. (FOSS) strive to keep camps affordable. Limited scholarships are available.

Paper Theater History Camp (Ages 7 - 10 years)

Session 2: August 14 - 18

Each, 1 week, session will run from 9-1pm at the Coos History Museum.

Tuition per week: $110 Non-Members / $90 Members | Space is limited/15 child limit per session.

Paper Puppet Theater Camp is a great way to learn about the many characters of Coos County. We will explore the basics of everything you need to start your own paper theater! We will use copies of images from real photos in the museum’s collection to create the set, characters, and storyline for a puppet show performance at the end of each session. This will be a wonderful week of cutting, gluing, writing, and acting, to present a never before seen Coos County tale! If your child enjoys constructing dioramas, making up stories, or acting, this is a great way to collaborate with others and be creative this summer! Each participant will leave with a small personal theater and character pack at the end of each session.
