Day Camps


The Living Coast Discovery Center offers fun and educational Day Camps programs year-round during school breaks for kids ages 4-18. 

Through animal encounters, games, arts and crafts, outdoor exploration, role play and career exploration, the world of our amazing native wildlife comes to life!  Our educational Day Camps are a fun way for your kids to learn during school breaks.

Thanksgiving Camps

School out for Thanksgiving but work isn’t? The Living Coast Discovery Center offers one, two, or three-day Thanksgiving Camps from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Nov. 24-26 (the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving).

Your kids will make friends, discover nature, track wildlife on the marsh, explore life under the microscope, feed sharks and meet birds, reptiles and sea turtles up-close – all in a fun, exciting program managed by Living Coast educators. Thanksgiving Camp is a hands-on opportunity for children to connect with nature and learn about the fantastic plants, animals and geology of San Diego bay.
