About Our Camp Experience
The Carlsbad Educational Foundation’s Enrichment Camp at the Agua Hedionda Lagoon will ensure small-group educational activities and, a myriad of outdoor experiences.
This camp is held in partnership with the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, a nonprofit committed to the preservation of the 400-acre Agua Hedionda Lagoon and its ecosystem. Your student’s experience will be enriched through hands-on learning in a natural setting with access to the lagoon.
Note: Space is limited to 48 students.

Students will have access to Chromebooks to work on assignments and connect with their teachers if they have scheduled live classes.

During the morning we will break up academic work with outdoor games and activities to keep our student’s mind’s sharp!
