Ballona Discovery Nature Camp is a science-based day camp focusing on nature in our urban environment. Our camp encourages children to "Explore Ballona!" by engaging them in fun and educational activities from identifying plants and animals to engaging in environmental stewardship projects and more. Along with the adventure and fun, many of our educational activities meet California curriculum standards.

Camp Details:

Each session is one week-long, Monday to Friday, 9am to 3pm.

For ages 8-11

$300/week **Scholarships available, please contact our Manager of Environmental Education, Carolyn at or (310) 306-5994.

Each week-long session focuses on a different theme (last two sessions are repeated).

Nature Skillz (Spring Camp Only) challenges campers to learn the skills used while exploring nature. From binocular and compass use to tracking animals, we'll cover it all. Your camper will come home confident and excited to explore nature.

Born to be WILD allows campers to discover the wildlife of the wetlands and within our urban environment. Through extensive exploration, projects and environmental stewardship, your camper will see the world around them with new eyes.

H2OOOOOOH! will send campers on an exciting exploration of water and how it connects everything from wetlands to oceans to your water bottle. Campers will understand the importance of water, but caution, they might get wet!
