Gateway Science Museum is offering a valuable and fun camp experience for 4th through 8th graders this summer: become an Eco-Kid or Eco-Ranger!

Starting next week, Gateway will offer two, weeklong summer day camps. Campers will be introduced to the Northern California eco-system, learn about renewable energy and natural resource management, build and program robots and practice environmental stewardship, all while having plenty of fun.

The Eco-Kids summer camp is for children entering grades 4 and 5, and runs from June 24-28, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Eco-Rangers summer camp is for children entering grades 6 through 8, and runs from July 15-19, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Space in the camps is limited, so parents are encouraged to register as soon as possible. For more information about Gateway Discovery Camps, please visit www.gatewayscience.org or call (530) 898-4121.
