Time is running out to register for Explorit’s Summer Science Camps, now at two locations! Join Explorit at Spring Lake Elementary in Woodland for the same great camps at a brand new elementary school campus.

 

While camps at Explorit’s museum in Davis are filling up, spots are still available in Woodland. Same great camps, brand new location.

 

Explore Yolo County’s local flora and fauna in Take a Walk on the Wild Side (July 9-13 in Davis, July 30-August 3 in Woodland). Or learn how you can protect wildlife, restore habitats and save the Earth in Planet Protectors (July 16-20 in Davis, August 6-10 in Woodland).

 

Upper elementary students can tackle all kinds of science challenges in Challenge Busters (June 25-29 in Davis, July 23-27 in Woodland). Test and identify substances with chemistry, overcome building obstacles with structural engineering and use all your skills and creativity to solve mysteries.
