This diverse park is well-maintained by the City of Pasadena. It is an actual and metaphorical passageway between wildlife and people. You can find more about Arroyo Park and what makes it a wonderful classroom setting here. Small group size 6 - 8 children total. 1:3 or 1:4 teacher:child ratio

Required Materials


Children are responsible for carrying their own belongings. 


You may be wondering what will my child do while at camp with little to no outside materials. Your child will play. Children will have the opportunity to explore the environment and play uninterrupted for extended periods of time. This will allow them to use their imaginations and get deep into their play where learning and understanding of themselves and the world happens.
