In light of social distancing guidelines, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History has launched its first grouping of 5-day summer camps for ages 4-9 to participate with their families at home. The first wave of programs will run from June 22 to July 10.
Akin to the museum's signature "Nature Adventures" camps offered each summer, the new distance-learning format includes hands-on science activities with live, interactive instruction from trained counselors via Zoom, for up to 15 campers per session.
Camp themes include bugs, astronomy, marine life, dinosaurs, endangered animals, and wizarding science.
Registered campers will receive a Camp Kit with course-related materials, supplies and a Nature Adventures t-shirt. Full and partial scholarship opportunities are available.
For more information and to register, visit sbnature.org/natureadventures.
All entries are due by July 6.
The mask exhibition features the works of 14 artists.
Valley Tool & Truck Rental, Hitching Post 2 and Allstate Insurance are all offering a helping hand to the local community.
On Thursday, May 14, the Sea Center on Stearns Wharf will light up in blue to show gratitude to healthcare and essential workers.
