Mountian and Sea Adventures has been running the most exciting and educational summer science camps for kids in California. MSA’s program is unique in that it focuses on imparting a love for natural science through hands-on experience oriented field research activities. Each child gets to experience the excitement of conducting real field research, and learning how to think and observe the natural world through the eyes of a scientist.
MSA has partnered with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife offering a one-of-a-kind program at Newport Beach’s Back Bay Science Center, where campers get to utilize state of the art facilities and equipment to explore the back bay estuaries. This program is focused on both imparting a personal appreciation for the rich resource of the back bay, as well as display how much fun it is to learn environmental science!
Located at the Cabrillo Youth Center, this day camp is centrally located near by some of San Pedro’s finest natural marine resources, such as the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, Cabrillo Beach Coastal Park, a bird estuary, tide pools and the various facilities and equipment at the Cabrillo Youth Center. Students learn a new topic each week as they expand their appreciation for the marine environment.
MSA’s most unique program of all is a week long journey aboard our new ship the U.S.S. Enhydra, which is fully stocked and loaded for both playing in and on the water and conducting ongoing marine science research. Campers get the opportunity to crusie around the island, visiting several various beaches and coves, and enjoying such activities as snorkeling, kayaking, exploring sea caves, hidden coves, beach games, hiking, fishing, sailing, paddleboarding, surfing, cliff jumping, camping and lots more!
