Summer Camp

Mars Adventure

An immersive space and science summer camp

Calling all aspiring engineers, astronauts, explorers, and problem solvers to join us this summer for a Mars Adventure! Designed from the ground up, the weeklong camp includes daily science activities, engineering challenges, and outdoor explorations, woven around an immersive mission to rescue a scientist stranded on Mars.

Campers will work in teams to tackle challenges, including surviving in space, landing on Mars, exploring the planet, communication, and search and rescue. The entire camp gathers each morning for the Daily Briefing- a time for groups to report on their progress and to receive additional information critical to the mission. Then campers navigate a range of indoor and outdoor activities led by Chabot instructors. The camp will take place inside Chabot’s science labs, classrooms, and museum spaces as well as outdoors in Redwood Regional Park.

  • Mars Adventure is open to campers 1st-6th Grade (fall 2017). Students will be grouped by grade (1&2, 3&4, 5&6)
  • Camp runs daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Optional early care is available from 8-9 am and after care is from 4-6 pm.
