Our Half-Day Camp Themes
Delve into the world of atoms, molecules and chemical reactions. From the super tiny to the super slimey, this fun, hands-on and interactive camp sends them on a fascinating journey of exploration and discovery! Get introduced to lab equipment, discover how and why things glow, and investigate the science of Sticky-ness.
CSI: Chemistry of Crime!
This camp mixes chemistry with crime solving! Discover how matter is never created or destroyed, use elements to form molecules that you can eat, experiment with electro-chemistry to make a battery out of ketchup and learn the recipe for invisible ink! Then team up with fellow campers to investigate a real crime scene, gather evidence, and catch a suspect!
Come with us on a journey to protect our planet...with science! In this exciting camp we will be GOING GREEN by experimenting with solar powered vehicles, oil spill clean up methods, and renewable energy sources. Inspect plants at a microscopic level, make an animal track and more!
Eureka! Back to the Past
Inventing means curiosity! Kids discover inventions from some of the greatest inventors of all time: Leonardo daVinci, Nikola Tesla, Benjamin Franklin, Archimedes, and more. Campers will experiment with bridges, forts, flying machines, and a trebuchet. What would you do if you were shipwrecked on a deserted island? Kids build inventions to survive and eventually escape the island!
Eureka! Into the Future
Inventing means dreaming. These days it seems like what used to be science fiction is now reality. In this camp, children will discover that SciFi writers Jules Verne and Isaac Asimov dreamed the future -which is now today! We'll experiment with submarines, space stations, and LASERs. It's time to get futuristic!
Suspects, schematics and sleuths…Oh my! Connect the dots using science to help solve a crime in this hands-on investigation on the science of sleuthing. Study a crime scene and tag evidence. Find clues surrounding the scene and investigate a real who-dun-it!
This camp offers a chance to explore just how gross our amazing bodies are! Discover cool chemical reactions, and get right down to the microscopic level to discover the stuff we're all made of—cells! Venture inward on a journey down the “Organ Trail” and explore all our body systems. Create an organ apron and a model lung to take home.
Whether you love to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes lots of both!Junior engineers will design and build bridges and skyscrapers using simple tools and their imaginations and even construct a geodesic dome big enough for all the campers to sit inside! Build a take home puzzle that may even stump your parents!
NASA: Junior Astronaut Training
Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! This hands-on program brings them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and more. They learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and they participate in a rocket launch!
Red Hot Robots
Children learn about the uses of robots in our world and spend time experimenting with super cool red-hot robots. They discover the science of circuits and how robots use sensors to explore things around them. They build their very own working robot to take home with them!
This camp offers a wide variety of science topics, from biology and ecology to chemistry and physics. Dissect an owl pellet, discover how a camera works and experiment with some fizzy chemical reactions!
Space, Sports & Spies
In this camp we will decipher codes and communicate in Morse, like a Spy. In the Science of Sports, jump right into the science of athletics and test what your toes have to do with tennis and what your feet have to do with football. Then we Blast off launching all types of rockets including engine, air and water powered ones.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is the have FUN! Send secret coded messages, examine fingerprints and fiber evidence, construct high-tech security systems, and build your own secret safe that no one can crack! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks in this hands-on view of the science that spies use. This message will self destruct in 3…2…
