Join us as we do hands-on investigations in the classroom and visit campus resources like the Marine Lab, Shark Lab, Vertebrate Lab, Bug Lab, Science Learning Center, Japanese Gardens, and the scanning electron microscope on campus. View this year's topics.

Make sure to reserve your spot soon! Grades 2, 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 are already sold out. You may contact to be put on the waitlist for these grades.

Young Scientists Camp is an exciting program that brings students, experienced teachers, future teachers and science specialists together for two weeks of hands-on exploration, discovery, and fun! This is an academically focused, hands-on science camp program hosted on the California State University, Long Beach campus for children entering 2nd-8th grade.
