School & Holiday Break Camps


Join us on your day off for School Holidays, PTA meetings, and vacations the Biocitizen way – off the screen, and into the green! Two of our naturalist educators will lead a group of students from your school for an active, fun, and engaging adventure in a local park or natural area. The program will take place at a location within 20 minutes of your school, maximizing your student(s) outdoor time and minimizing your commute time. We’ll be ready with nature guides, journals, a selection of our favorite trails and games, and seasonally inspired activities for an experience aligned with our core values: Wonder, Connection, and Stewardship.

Register here for Biocitizen’s adventures across the vibrant, natural spaces of our city’s local and surrounding parks! The bustling songs of migrating birds and nearby mountain tops will inspire awe and wonder as we connect with the myriad of life in Los Angeles County.

Campers will be split into age/ability-appropriate groups to have an optimal experience while learning to read and love our landscapes. Whether they’re 5 or 13 years old, this program will provide your child an opportunity to safely get outside, connect with their local environment, and have fun with their peers and our awesome Biocitizen teachers.

Days will be filled with Biocitizen’s robust and popular outdoor exploration activities: from hiking, nature games, indigenous history, native plants, journaling, and divulging in exciting spontaneous observations! Our full-day programming offers an opportunity for students to venture into deeper lines of inquiry, trails on the map, and historical timelines as we explore all that makes up our local ecosystems.

Ages: 5-13, Depending on our enrollment numbers we will break into age-specific groups, with custom-tailored itineraries to meet our students where they’re at!
