Class Experience

We're excited to offer six weeks of Wildlings Summer Camps to Nurture your child's inner Nature. At the Batiquitos Lagoon, we will be offering three sessions for ages 5-7.  If you wish to attend six weeks of summer camps, please sign up for the San Dieguito Park sessions for ages 5-7. See below for more information about each week of camps at the Batiquitos Lagoon.

W1: Acclimating to The Elementary Elements

Session 1: Jun 27-Jun 30 @ Batiquitos Lagoon

Early learning classes are immersed in nature, designed to build Kindergarten and 1st Grade skills. Leveraging CA State standards, children engage in games and inquiry-led learning, bridging any gaps and readying young learners for the next stage in their education.

W3:Art of Storytelling

Session 3: Jul 11-Jul 14 @ Batiquitos Lagoon

Long before humans read or wrote, they shared their history and stories verbally. They relied on the oral tradition—and their great memories! Our children also rely on this technique—recounting an adventure, sharing a personal story, or explaining the context of one of their creations which become all forms of narration. As they begin to reach for other means by which to express themselves, for example, images and symbols such as letters, teachers guide them to bridge the gap between oral and written, helping them channel the natural impulse to retell in a way that supports their emergent writing foundation. The final product will be a collective work that features each student’s narrative threads, weaving them all together into one.

W5: Nurture the Inner Naturalist

Session 5: Jul 25-Jul 28 @ Batiquitos Lagoon

Satiate an innate curiosity and love for the outdoors as we explore, observe, and map our journeys along beloved trails. A guest speaker will highlight the importance of conserving our protected spaces.
