REDDING — Do you have a child, age 7 to 12 who loves to look up to the stars and contemplate the mystery and wonder of our universe? Or perhaps your child fancies themselves to be a junior adventurer? Someone who loves to explore the world around them in a quest for hidden treasure?

If so, then Turtle Bay Exploration Park in Redding has two upcoming single-day camps in February that would be perfect for them!

Among many other special events that Turtle Bay is featuring for children this month, are two single-day camps: Out of This World and Junior Adventurer, that are sure to bring a smile to your child’s face.

Scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 20, Out of This World will undoubtedly spark your child’s sense of wonder and excitement about the moon, the sun, the stars and beyond!

During the one-day camp, your future “intergalactic science explorer” will have the opportunity to interact with other children while they investigate the forces of our solar system and the universe.

The following day, Friday, Feb. 21, Turtle Bay will be featuring another single-day camp perfect for your little explorer.

During the Junior Adventurer day camp, brave explorers will have a chance to discover if the rumors of a hidden treasure at Turtle Bay are true!

Your junior Indiana Jones or little Lara Croft will get to work side by side with other junior adventurers for an exciting expedition while investigating clues, uncovering secret messages, and exploring around the park; all while in search of hidden treasure.

Turtle Bay’s single-day camps are available for children ages 7-12, and run from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Materials and a snack are provided during the event, but participants must bring their own lunch. Pre-registration is required by February 14. The cost is $45 for members / $55 for non-members.
