CAMP LOCATION: Camp takes place at CEDO Field Station in Puerto Penasco, Mexico

Our camp is located at CEDO, Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans, field station in Rocky Point (Puerto Penasco), Sonora, Mexico, an easy half day drive from Phoenix or Tucson.

CAMP FACILITIES: CEDO's field station is located in the Las Conchas housing development, the “Jewel of Sonora”. CEDO’s campus sits atop one of the highest dunes east of the town center of Rocky Point, and is outlined by an elegant sinuous wall and entry gate. The main edifice is constructed in the Greek Monastic architectural style with an open patio courtyard and a balcony overlooking the Sea of Cortez. There is a boys' room and a girls' room on the balcony level, where the children sleep in their own sleeping bag on sleeping pads provided by CEDO.

CAMP PROGRAM INFO: Summer has an adventure in store for you: an adventure in marine biology! CEDO’s Wet Feet Ocean Camp is an overnight summer camp for youth ages 10 – 14. For five days and four nights children will explore the Upper Gulf of California intertidal zone and surrounding Sonoran Desert. Accommodations will be provided at the CEDO field station in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico. The cost is $415, with an optional (additional) $100 island cruise to Isla San Jorge. We ask you to make a $100 reservation deposit as soon as possible for each child attending the camp.

Campers will explore the marine biology of the Upper Gulf of California through both field study and hands-on activities. Uncovering brittle stars, nudibranchs, and octopi in the intertidal zone; dancing for shrimp in the estuary; discovering the secrets of different marine organisms that live in this biologically rich area — these are only a few of the activities in which the campers will participate.

Counselors with experience in marine biology and desert ecology, and trained in First Aid and CPR, will staff the camp. All food and beverages (including purified water) will be provided for campers on site. Campers will have the opportunity to visit downtown Rocky Point (Puerto Peñasco) and should bring some spending money, but will spend the majority of their time in the field, or at CEDO.

FAMILY CAMP SESSION(S): Family members may join the island cruise for an additional cost per person. On the last day of camp, family members are invited to see the campers' presentations, followed by lunch (at an additional nominal cost per family member).

YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMS: A casual visitor to CEDO may enjoy a self-guided tour of our botanical garden, take a close up look at our 55 foot fin whale skeleton, browse the books and treasures in our gift shop and more.

CEDO also offers unique opportunities to explore the sea and desert through our NaturArte ecotours. Go for a hike in North America’s largest sand sea, kayak the channels of Morua Estuary, or explore the diverse marine life found in the tidepools of the Northern Gulf of California.

Check our events calendar for dates and times, as well as additional activities. All tours begin and end at CEDO’s field station in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora. Reservations can be made by phone at (520) 320-5473 in the U.S. or 011-526-38-382-0113, or 0115, in Mexico, or by email at info[AT]cedointercultural.org.

CEDO’s NaturArte program is an award winning conservation project designed to strengthen ties between tourists, local communities and ecosystems, while raising intercultural and environmental awareness. A portion (10%) of the proceeds goes directly to CEDO’s Estero Conservation Fund. The rest supports CEDO’s other conservation projects.

CAMP SESSION DATES & FEES:
Camp is scheduled for July 2 - 6, 2016. The cost is $415, with an optional (additional) $100 island cruise to Isla San Jorge. Parents and siblings may join the island cruise for an additional $100 per person. We ask you to make a $100 reservation deposit as soon as possible for each child attending the camp.

This week we will enjoy the best of our camp activities, including a visit to Bearizona to see those deer and antelope play, a hayride, a sing along by the campfire, horseback riding through the range, a wild west BBQ with western entertainment, western leather crafts inspired by local native Americans and western Karaoke. We�ll close out the week with a line dance to the best of country music. Seldom is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day at Camp Civitan!

Wild West Week: Welcome to our ranch on the American frontier, in a dusty little town the locals call Williams. Frontier towns like Williams, situated at the edge of civilization, can be dangerous places. Our particular town is often beset by outlaws. These bandits will roll into town taking gold, money and food before riding back out to the range. The Sheriff needs to deputize a few good men and women to restore order. Join us for a week filled with crackling campfires under the western moon, gold rush days, cowboys and outlaws, the Cowpuncher�s Rodeo, horseback riding and an old-fashioned hoedown barn dance on Sunday.

We will begin our trip at Arizona�s own Wonder, the Grand Canyon, as we travel to the canyon and experience the Wonder first hand. Each day we will travel to a new country by experiencing the food, games and music from each new worldly destination. We will visit the Mount Everest, Canada�s Victoria Falls, the Great Barrier Reef, Mexico�s Paricutin Volcano, and many more exciting destinations on our grand adventure. Come experience all the world has to offer during the 7 Wonders of the World week at Camp Civitan.

Wet and Wild Patriotic Week: This week we�ll be splishin� and a-splashin�, movin� and a-groovin� and rockin� and a-rollin� as we celebrate the joy of being American. Being American in July means splashing down a slip-n-slide, barbecues with hot dogs and ice cold coke, and parades down Main Street. In honor of this one-of-a-kind heritage, we will have wild and wet activities each day including water slides, a trip to the Williams aquatic center, water games, and many beautiful and extraordinary outdoor adventures here at Camp Civitan. For the icing on the cake (or the ice cream on the apple pie), our campers will ride on a festive float in the Williams 4th of July Parade. Come discover what makes America Great! Join us for a wild week of water games and patriotic wacky fun. You are sure to find plenty of ways to beat the heat during this very wet, very wild celebration of America!
