Scripps Nature Summer Camp combines traditional camp experiences with sports and arts
We offer programs for ages 6 -14, with sessions lasting two weeks long running from June through August. Scripps Nature Summer Camp encourages children to connect with nature, play sports and spark their creativity.
Campers will be picked up and dropped off by our experienced and qualified counselors. Campers needing extended care, (before or after the standard day) will meet at Flip Force San Diego.
Each day campers will have the opportunity to hike, explore and discover a new site. Each venue will bring a new adventure.
After exploring, campers will tap in to their creative side through a series of art projects and a puppetry workshop. Camper will learn how to create their own puppets.
In the early afternoon campers will flip, jump, and bounce at Flip Force San Diego. At this elite multi-sport gym, children can experiment with trampoline, tumbling and parkour.
To finish off the day, campers will be invited to play soccer or join in on a swim session.
