Day Camp 101

Chula Vista Nature Center Camps = Hands On Fun!

Kindergarten and Pre-K moms, I want to tell you about the sweetest way to introduce your child to day camp. The Chula Vista Nature Center offers fun, educational and low cost camps that are also fairly short, making them a great way to introduce your little one to a camp experience.

Last spring both of my children attended the nature center’s 2-day “Rock Stars” day camp where they learned about tide pools, got to feed, touch and photograph the animals they were interacting with, did sea-star related crafts and had a snack with their new camp friends all in a quick three hour morning. It was a great way to have them express their independence while getting some cool, hands on fun with sea creatures. Gage has started to ask about going again, just in time for next week’s spring break camps!

One of the best parts of the Chula Vista Nature Center day camps is their prices, which start at $38 for members and $42 for non-members. But even better is WINNING a FREE two or three day pre-K or kindergarten camp of your choice.

If you are looking for an educational and fun camp during the weeks of March 26th or April 2nd, check out the options at the nature center by clicking here. To enter to win, simply leave a comment below with the name and date of the preschool or kinder camp you are interested in having your child attend. One winner will be randomly selected on Thursday, March 22nd.

Good luck and happy spring break moms!
