Environmentalism Summer Camps & Programs for Kids in the Bay Area

Empower your child to become a steward of the planet at our newest summer camp! Young environmentalists delve into ecosystems, habitats, and adaptations, exploring the impact of waste and pollution on our world. For senior epic environmentalists, the adventure continues with critical thinking challenges, team-based projects on sustainable energy cities, innovative upcycling solutions, and the opportunity to lead impactful awareness campaigns. Join us for a summer of learning, creativity, and environmental advocacy!

    The Learning!
Rising 1st - 2nd Graders
Rising 3rd - 4th Graders
Rising 5th - 6th Graders
Get ready for an awesome adventure learning about the world around us! We'll dive into cool ecosystems, discover different habitats, and see how animals adapt to their homes. All week long, we'll investigate how trash and pollution can hurt our planet and learn the secrets of renewable and non-renewable energy. Let's have fun becoming Earth-saving heroes together!

Our amazing Intern & Senior epic environmentalists are in for a thrilling journey of discovery and innovation! Watch as they unleash their critical thinking superpowers to tackle real-world environmental challenges. They'll collaborate in teams to design and model sustainable energy cities, dream up ingenious ways to upcycle commonly discarded materials, and master their communication skills by creating an awareness campaign on an issue close to their hearts. Get ready to be amazed by their creativity and passion as they work together to make the world a better place!

*Interns and Seniors may have some overlapping activities but Interns are in a different grouping keeping in mind the level of support they may need 

At Camp Brainy Bunch we aim to combine the best parts of school (Learning) with the best parts of camp (Fun)! Each week is a robust curriculum written and edited by our outstanding network of educators who have years of experience in the classroom as well as being camp staff. We scaffold activities to ensure all campers are successful no matter their level. We also challenge advanced campers by adding layers of complexity. 

The Fun!

Daily Morning Meetings to build culture, lasting memories and friendships!

Brain Breaks! It's summer after all so let's PLAY! Brain Breaks allow us to transition between curriculum activities. Brain Breaks feature classic camp games as well as unique activities that follow the weekly theme. We also encourage our staff to be their authentic selves by hosting games/activities near and dear to them.

Fun Friday Celebrations! Every Friday we acknowledge the success of our campers and host a much deserved water day to cool off from the summer heat!
