The Crissy Field Center’s mission is to encourage new generations to become bold leaders for thriving parks, healthy communities, and a more environmentally just society. Our two-week summer day-camps are designed to give children in-depth experiences in our urban environment and local national park. The Center’s LEED Platinum certified green building and state-of-the-art learning environments serve as home base for these summer adventures.
Through a rich combination of outdoor investigation, field outings, and fun hands-on projects, campers learn about important ecological concepts and issues. Our blended staff of full-time Parks Conservancy educators and national park rangers ensures your camper will get all the support they need on their educational national park adventure.
Camp hours are 9 am–4 pm and run from June 10–Aug. 2. Optional Extended Care is available from 8:15–8:50 am and 4–5:15 pm.
