Looking for something to do for your child during February winter break? The Bay Area Discovery Museum still has a few openings for their Shipwrecked and Treasure Hunts camp, February 22–24, 2012 from 9 am–3 pm.
Have your child age 4–7 spend three exhilarating days living the life of a sailor in this exciting camp. Experience the delights and hardships of a sea-faring life; make maps, sing chanteys, dig for artifacts and treasures from mysterious lands, and discover weird sea creatures.
Spend some time at sea this summer! Call of the Sea, an educational non-profit based in Sausalito, is offering a Voyage Camp designed for students ages 12–18 to take part in three- and five-day summer sea voyages to explore the waters of the San Francisco Bay and Beyond!
These three-and five-day overnight seagoing adventures challenge and teach teenagers the ways of the ocean. Under the guidance of a professional captain and crew, students learn to sail a classic sailing vessel as a team. Dependent on weather, wind and tide instead of social pressures and electronic entertainment, they gain an appreciation and respect for the ocean environment. All participants will learn steering, navigating, standing watch, and helping in the galley as students become one with the rhythm of a ship at sea.
