YSI Summer Science Camp 2013 - Pre-K or entering K Fall 2013 (Group A)
YSI is offering a limited selection of our most popular camps this summer. We encourage everyone to register as soon as possible to ensure that you get the camps that you want.
Group A children must have a date of birth before January 1, 2010 and be able to use the bathroom independently.
Camp times: 9:00 A.M. - 11:30 A.M.
New preschool-type format for our youngest campers: four unique weeks in rotation (red, blue, green, and purple.) Each color week is offered twice in the summer and features different animals, experiments, habitats, games, snacks, and crafts.
Register for one to four weeks to explore the world through hands-on science. Experiment with water, bubbles, gak, color, light, sound, movement, and more. Get your hands messy with kitchen chemistry making snacks and other concoctions. Dig in the dirt, pick up rocks, take a close look in the grass, smell leaves, and look under bark to learn more about our natural environment.

Extended Morning Summer Science Camp:
Extended Morning Summer Science Camp is being offered at both Alum Rock Park and Vasona Lake County Park this summer.
The Extended Morning Summer Science Camp runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Extended Morning Summer Science Camp is a continuation of the camp day for A campers (pre-K or entering Kindergarten). This camp allows younger campers to remain in camp for the same period of time as their older siblings. Extended Camp activities include arts and crafts, story time, indoor and outdoor games and activities, and quiet time.
