1st – 3rd Grade Camps
We offer five different themes for the first through third grade age group. Read through all the themes:
You’re never too young to become a master of your craft! Campers will take inspiration from major artistic movements throughout history and some of the best-known artists of all time, to put their own creative spin on classic artistic techniques.
Offered Weeks 2, 6, 9
Some art is larger than life – just ask our Big Art campers! After exploring examples of large-scale art installations—such as architecture, life-sized sculpture, and performance pieces—they’ll create and curate their own works of art. This camp is all about going big!
Offered Weeks 2, 4, 6, 9, 11
A fort can be an endless source of entertainment, and we know building them is where the fun begins! Campers will use real tools and unique building materials to design and construct both individual and collaborative forts. Using decorations and signage, they’ll curate their creations and put their personal stamp on what they build.
Offered Weeks 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12
Science of Silly
What makes something funny? Come find out! Campers will deconstruct the abstract world of humor to discover what can tickle a funny bone and make a person laugh. They’ll use kooky comics, eccentric engineering, and interesting interviews to curate their unique sense of humor!
Offered Weeks 4, 7, 10
Get up-close and personal with the great outdoors! Through exploration of Fort Baker, campers will learn key outdoor survival skills, such as how to find and make clean drinking water, what can be used to build shelter, and which plants are safe to eat. A highlight of the camp week is a special behind-the-scenes visit to the Coast Guard, where campers meet with an officer and learn about maritime safety.
