About this event

Middle-schoolers can find out what it takes to be a scientist in this in-person, weekday camp.

A young girl stands in front of a glass case writing notes on a clipboard. Inside the case is set of three skulls. The girl is wearing glasses and a yellow seater.

What would you discover on your expedition? Learn how scientists like Dr. Jane Gooddall explore life on Earth. This five-day, in-person camp is inspired by Dr. Goodall and her work (as featured in the exhibition, Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Jane Goodall).

Campers in grades 6-8 meet Monday to Friday, 9am–3pm. They’ll join Field scientists in planning and leading their own expeditions through their local ecosystems. By the end of the week, campers will have collected specimens, observations, and impressions right near their own homes.

Registration is $500. Space is limited.
