Navigator campers get the opportunity to explore San Diego, as well as spend time with their friends onsite at camp. Each week campers will travel on three field trips. Twice a week they will travel to a fun San Diego destination, with the location differing each week, such as the Zoo, Pump it Up!, Ice Skating or Old Town. For their third field trip of the week, campers will escape the East County heat and head to the bay for the day. The remaining two days will be spent onsite at camp; the campers will be swimming, learning new games and sports, and being creative with a variety of activities. At the end of each week, your camper will have made new friends, developed skills in sports, swimming, arts and crafts, and science, as well as made new discoveries about the world around them!
