Ever since your kiddo's first baking soda and vinegar experiment, he or she has been totally sold on the idea that science is fun. Like that makeshift volcano, today's deal is blowin' up: Pay $6 for two tickets to a one-hour guided wildlife tour at STAR Eco Station (a $12 value) -- or drop $107 and receive a five-day science-based summer camp for incoming first-graders to seventh-graders (a $215 value). This Rocklin facility provides a safe home for endangered animals and hands-on ecology lessons for their human fans. Explore the tropical garden as your expert guide introduces your group to birds, exotic reptiles, and ocean life, or choose between eight different summer camp themes for your ecology-minded youngster. Camp sessions run weekly throughout the summer, starting the week of June 18-22 and ending August 13-17, and last from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day. Popular sessions include Winged Wonders, which teaches children about birds' communication patterns and rhythmic abilities; Where the Wild Things Roam, which looks at the survival mechanisms of animals in the Earth's lush rainforests, bone-dry deserts, and swampy wetlands; and Jr. Eco Staff, the most popular option, which allows campers to work side-by-side with full-time Eco Station staff members to care for the facility's rescued creatures -- taking that scientific curiosity out of your kitchen and into the wild.
