Life Lab offers spring-break day camp for 7-11-year-olds
Children ages 7-11 are invited to spend spring break on the UCSC Farm, where
the Life Lab Science Program offers a jam-packed week of fun activities, including
gardening, cooking, and crafts.
Campers will prepare food fresh from the farm, sow seeds for home gardens, make
compost, and plant seedlings in the Life Lab Garden Classroom. Each day has a theme,
including "Plants Day," "Habitat Day," and "Dirt Day."
The camp takes place April 9-13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is $230; a sibling
discount is available. Registration forms are available for download at
www.lifelab.org (click on "Summer Camp"
