Summer 2022

Mad Inventors:  Creative Contraption Warning!  This is a camp designed by you- the inventor!  Each day you'll be given a series of challenges which must be overcoming using basic materials, simple machines, tips form world famous inventors and the most important thing of all- your mind.  With a little bit of ingenuity, you'll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, fabricate a winning egg drop design, construct a dancing robot and assemble a working lightsaber to take home.  While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun!

Rocketry Camp:  This action-packed week will focus solely on rockets and the physics of rocket flight.  After learning the model rocket safety code, campers will build different types of rockets and participate in rocket launches during the week.  Children will be divided into three groups:  altitude trackers, launch preparers, and launchers for rocket launches and will get the opportunity to try different roles. 

Underground Explorers:  Kids learn archaeology and the techniques scientists use to excavate long lost cities!  They discover ancient civilizations and the tools and artifacts they used in everyday life!  They also study bone fragments, pottery shards, amber deposits, and fossils to understand what they can tell us about history!  What's more, each class includes a make and take home project, like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule, and coins from around the world!  

Nasa:  Journey into Outer Space:  From our Earth's atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system, this hands-on program sends them on a quest for exploration!  Comets, planets, stars and more are all waiting to be discovered.  Learn about the four forces of flight, the challenges of space travel, and the amazing objects in our solar system!

Little Green Thumbs:  Give your preschooler a green thumb without using paint!  Campers will earn about plants by dissecting seeds, making leaf rubbings and creating frameable fruit and veggie prints.  Learn what types of weather are vital for a healthy garden.  Put on your bee-utiful bug costume and flutter by the camp as you learn about one of a flower's favorite pollinators!  Come see what the buzz is all about!

Space Alien Travelers:  Children will discover how to send secret messages using special codes, explore their environment, and find out how science can help us to protect our planet.  Your Junior Mad Scientist will earn how Newton's laws are at work in their favorite sports and join the ranks of space scientists examining the mysteries of the solar system!  

Secret Agent Lab:  The following camp description is classified as TOP SECRET!   Ever dream of becoming a secret agent?  We'll start with the basics, from decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision. Campers will have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gadgets like spy glasses!  Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis!  Figure out the science of forensics in a hands on look at crime scenes!  Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a hands on investigation of the science that spies use!
