About the Class

Dates: June 17-21, 2024 Embark on a journey of discovery in our "Alameda Treasure Hunt Field Trip Camp," This camp offers an opportunity for kids to explore the rich history, culture, and natural beauty of Alameda through exciting walking field trips, scavenger hunts, and orienteering activities. Orienteering is an outdoor navigation activity which involves using a map and compass to navigate from point to point. We will assist kids to use maps and find their way to various treasures, marked on the map, as quickly as possible.
