One Day Camp - January 2012
Monday, January 23, 2012
9am - 4pm
Camp isn’t just for summer anymore! Come and get messy – and get scientific – discovering the science behind food preparation at What’s Cooking, a one-day camp on Monday, January 23, from 9am to 4pm.
Kids ages 7 to 10 can spend a day at the Exploratorium seeing popcorn and cereal as they’ve never seen them before. While practicing the art of careful observation, they will also discover how to calculate the fat and energy content of various edibles. Plus, they will get to make their own dairy products.
Each of our one-day camps offers playful and creative opportunities for children to explore the world around them using a mix of science activities, experiments, art projects, group games, our vast exhibit collection, and more. Every session includes curiosity-driven free exploration in the Exploratorium before it opens to the public. Kids can now go to camp when school is out on select SF public school holidays and furlough days. Great for working families!
Camp days are 9am - 4pm. Extended care is available; the hours are 8:30 am – 9am and 4pm – 5:30 pm. Price: $70 for Members and $85 for Nonmembers. Call (415) 561-0231 for more information - or visit our web site and register online: http://www.exploratorium.edu/membership/day_camps/#one-day
