Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History
Calling young artists and scientists curious about nature!
Date: Every day (Feb 2-Apr 6) from 8:30am to 3:30pm
Ages: 5-6 Admission Fees: $265 - April 2-6, 8:30-3:30
Special Instructions: Discounts for members and siblings, limited scholarships available

(0 February 2018) SCMus_SpringCamp2018ArtandSceinceofNature.jpgThe Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History is proud to present an inspiring week of nature exploration.

Campers draw inspiration from nature through exploration and hands-on investigation! They make new friends at this day camp featuring walking field trips, Museum exploration, science projects, and nature-inspired art.

We invite kindergartners and first graders to come observe, explore, and appreciate the wonders of the natural world here in our backyard as well as in the Museum's collection. With the inspiration of our spring "Art of Nature" exhibit, we will explore what nature reveals to us everyday through a variety of individual and collaborative art projects. Every camper will create artwork to take home, make scientific discoveries, and most importantly, create memories, friendships, and a personal connection to the unique nature of the Santa Cruz coast.

Each of the five days will focus on a different theme that will guide a variety of art projects, science investigations, supervised explorations, and games. "Leave no trace" ethics and safety in nature will be emphasized throughout the week so that campers will leave equipped with a better understanding of how to responsibly interact with the natural world.

Join us to build connections to nature and stewardship for our world. ENROLLMENT WILL OPEN FEB 2 at 9 am.

San Lorenzo Valley High School
An original science-fiction epic adventure written and directed by SLVHS senior Sampson Miller
Date: Every day (Mar 1-Mar 4)
Ages: 13-14 Admission Fees: $9 - $12

San Lorenzo Valley High School is proud to present the world premiere of The Winds of Beyond, a new play by Sampson Miller. The Winds of Beyond is presented at the San Lorenzo Valley High School Performing Arts Center one weekend only, March 1 through March 4.

 

Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:00 p.m., with a Sunday matinee at 2:00 p.m. Community Night is Thursday, March 1. Tickets will be available to purchase at the door; prices are listed below.

The Winds of Beyond is an original science-fiction epic adventure play that follows Lyla Stone, a woman stranded on a space station in an alien solar system. Lyla finds herself thrust into an adventure to find an intergalactic artifact known as The Winds of Beyond. The story features 18 different alien races, with Lyla being the sole humanoid in the story. The play recently underwent two staged readings wherein it received enthusiastic responses from attendees and praise for the level of detail contained within the storytelling.

Written and directed by SLVHS senior Sampson Miller, this comedy is designed and produced entirely by students. From costumes, make-up, lighting, set and prop design, to stage management, running crew and set building -- the students do it all!

Sampson Miller has participated in 11 high school productions, including the recent play, Museum, which he co-directed. Miller has also written and directed several short films, including "The Ultimate Servant", which received critical acclaim at the Student Voices Campaign Film Festival earlier this year.

Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School
How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out
Date: Every Mon (Nov 1-May 1)

Shadow Day

How do students know if Kirby is a good fit? A shadow day is an ideal way to find out. We will pair your student with a student host with similar interests. Together they will experience a "day in the life" at Kirby. They will attend classes together, hang out with other Kirby students, and enjoy lunch with their host and some of their friends.

 

How it works:

  • Monday is our preferred shadow day because of our block schedule. However, a shadow day can be scheduled any day of the week.
  • Student shadows are treated to a hot lunch made fresh in our kitchen.
  • Schedule your shadow day through the Admissions Office. Call (831) 423-0658 ×202.

Join us for this hilarious comedy farce and murder mystery and learn whodunit!

 

March 15, 16 and 17 from 7-9:30 and March 18 from 2-3:30

 

The long-absent member of an aristocratic English family, Barnaby Folcey, returns home at the request of patriarch Orion Leduc. Things aren't all as they appear to be at the family manse and before long prodigal Barnaby has become the late Barnaby. Dying, he scrawls a message that (as it turns out) could implicate virtually anybody in the house.

As the bizarre group frantically tries to unmask the murderer, people vanish, poison is found in the sherry, and the police take forever to arrive... Meanwhile, there's a secret treasure to be found, a mystifying limerick to decode, and all sorts of doom to be avoided before the killer is finally unmasked and destroyed!
