Camp Application Process
The 2021 Summer Camp season is yet to be determined. Our partners, UC Davis Campus Recreation Youth Programs and the UC Reserve system, also are not yet ready to make these decisions. The application timeline, if there is going to be one, will be very different than in the past. To stay informed, sign up for our listserv at the very bottom right of this page. (January 19, 2021)

We want to provide opportunities to as many people as possible, but there are many constraints that we have no control over. We regret that we have wait lists, but we don't want to compromise the quality of the camps. We do take into consideration whether a camper has previously applied to the camp and been wait listed as it shows a strong desire to attend the camp. We also take into consideration the grade of the camper. Applications typically come from all over California, but also across the US and the world.
We truly welcome feedback and suggestions. Campers and their families have influenced the evolution of the camps in countless ways and will continue to do so. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Contact Tabatha Yang, Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Bohart Museum of Entomology at UC Davis, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions. Please use the words "Bio Boot Camp question" in the subject line.
2020 Camp Forms - the deadline is Friday, March 20, 2020
The application due date is 11 PM on Friday, March 20, 2020. We may need to talk with student applicants to clarify or verify their answers below. We will do so through the phone number provided for responsible adults. The Application process has been delayed and notices will be given on or before April 13 and given the option to accept and register. Others will be automatically placed on a wait list unless they opt out.
If you are in the junior high category and you attended camp last year when we visited Sagehen Creek, then you may apply to Mountain Camp in 2020, but we will give preference to eligible students who have not attended Mountain Camp before.
