Ocean Week

We also offer an Ocean Week program. If you would like marine biology to be the focus of your week, this is the program for you.

This program is based out of our Conference Center. Our camp lies about 15 minutes away from the Monterey Bay, which offers a wealth of educational opportunities for day trips. School is responsible all transportation & any entrance fees.

Our classes focus on the natural sciences, environmental stewardship, and team-building and have been tailored to support the California Science Standards for 5th and 6th grade. Classes are taught by Mission Springs Naturalists with supervisory assistance from chaperones that the school provides. All classes involve some hiking. Class size varies from 15 to 20 depending on the number of students attending that week. Teachers select classes students will participate in.
