This camp is definitely for the child with an inquisitive mind who likes to ask questions to gain a better understanding of the world and how things work. Choose from a variety of topics, as campers can explore different theme-based science concepts each week—no two weeks are the same! Experience a new scientific adventure every day by making a hypothesis, conducting experiments, building structures and using deductive reasoning to produce creative solutions to scientific dilemmas. The list of exciting theme weeks is listed below:
July 2-5: Engineers in Training
How do they build that? Our engineers-in-training will investigate how to design and build the tallest, strongest, most creative and efficient structures out of household materials.
July 8-12: Making Sense of Your Senses
Explore the limits of our five senses and develop an understanding in how our senses of sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell affect our daily lives.
July 15-19: What’s the Weather?
Become a junior meteorologist by investigating the science behind clouds, tornados, hurricanes, typhoons, snow blizzards and a beautiful, warm summer’s day.
July 22-26: Get Energized
Just as our campers are always full of energy, so is this camp! Delve into the science behind different forms of energy such as solar, kinetic, chemical and thermal sources and learn how each play a huge role in our daily lives.
July 29-Aug. 2: Going Green
As future champions of the Earth, these junior scientists are learning how their ecological and global footprint can influence the atmosphere and all of the ecosystems within it.
Aug. 5-9: Out of this World
Reach for the stars? Not these young astronauts, because for them the stars are only the beginning! Spend a week on a journey with Buzz Lightyear exploring infinity and beyond!
Aug. 12-16: Inside Me
Designed for aspiring young doctors, this camp examines how the human body works by incorporating fun, hands-on activities that delve into aspects of various body systems such as circulatory, respiratory and integumentary systems, just to name a few.
Aug. 19-23: Junior Ecologist
This camp explores various ecosystems and how they are interconnected. Through interactive activities, our young scientists will come to understand the various relationships between species and why each plays an important role in the web of life.
Cost: $280 per week
