KidzJet Adventures is a unique outdoor science program designed for your child to explore real life through exploration. Our program is designed by instructors who specialize in outdoor education. We try to make our programs different every week and each camp focuses on a particular theme.
Marine Experience: An exploration of tide-pools. Striding through clear, cool pools, we identify the plant and animal life of tide-pools. What does seaweed feel like to the touch? How many different species do we see? As we explore this environment at the edge of the sea, we learn about the interconnected food web.
Jungle Experience: A journey through time and majestic old growth redwood forests. Rising high above our heads majestic redwood trees reach toward the sky. How do these trees get so tall? What role does fog play in the sustainability of this magnificent organism? As we hike through these amazing groves, we will learn about what makes a healthy forest.
Zoology experience: A trip through the animal kingdom. A trip through the magical world of animals isn’t complete without an exploration of the zoo. Each species of animal has its own unique characteristics. Whether they are amphibians or mammals, can take flight or burrow deep in the ground, our exploration of the animal kingdom might just be your child’s favorite day of our journey.
The Art of Botany: The bee and the flower. Why do flowers have such bright colors? What are the different parts of a flower? We will spend the day dissecting plants as we identify the parts of a flower. We will create Goldworthy art out the plants we dissect as well as nature mandalas from the left over parts.
Geo-Exploration: Our ever-changing and dynamic world. As we travel along the San Mateo coastline, we will explore California’s seismic past by studying the physical features of the land. Why did the coastal mountains rise? Why did those fence posts move? Why do the rock layers bend? Why can I crumble sandstone with my own two hands? We will end our week with a blissful afternoon at the beach making sand castles. Sounds like fun.
Discovering and experimenting with Art: Create dynamite drawings and design your own superhero. Let creativity be your guide as you explore the works of
talented artists. You will play with paint on canvas and produce your own magnificent masterpiece.
