2023 CAMP DESCRIPTIONS
Take a Dive
Dive into the world of marine biology and oceanography! In our half day camp you’ll dissect a real shark, participate in a fisherman’s challenge, examine the anatomy of a fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing”, learn to survive at sea with a homemade solar still, create a kelp forest and make your own submarine. Stay for the full day camp and come face-to-face with some unique sea creatures! You’ll complete a squid dissection, bring to life genuine Triassic Triops, conduct a whale adaptations lab, and examine many weird wonders that live under the sea! For ages 7-11.
Ready, Set, Science!
We’ve taken our after-school club topics from 2022-23 and turned them into a fun-filled week-long camp! Get your goggles ready to experiment with chemistry that fizzes, bangs and pops. Make an explosion in a bag, erupt a mini geyser, mix up fizzy bath poppers, elephant toothpaste and other bubbling concoctions! Explore the world of physics and chemistry that exists in toys. Examine how simple machines make work easier and more fun too! Compete with your friends in a pulley race, construct a lever to make a cool catapult, and explore gears. Discover the secret colors in candy, conduct heat sensitive experiments that change color, and make the best bubble solution ever!
Potions, Powders and Polymers Academy
Is it science or magic? You’ll find out! In our half day camp you’ll create erupting foam monsters, conduct amazing air pressure experiments, dig for hidden treasures, investigate the science of illusions and build spectroscopes to view the spectrum of different types of light. Stay for the full day and we’ll reveal many mysteries of science as we investigate creepy creatures, learn troll tricks, capture a rainbow in a bottle, make instant snow, mix up glowing slime and conduct lab tests on mystery substances. For ages 7-11.
Far Out Space Academy
3…2…1 BLAST OFF to discovering space and flight! Half day campers will explore the stars and constellations as you take an out-of-this-world sky tour in our homemade planetarium, prepare for lift-off as you build and launch your own rocket while learning about Newton’s Laws of Motion, complete a mission to Mars as you design and build your own model space station and work in engineering teams to construct space capsules that will be used to launch “eggstronauts”! Full day campers will continue to use their astronaut wits as we build air powered nano-rovers, make craters and dry ice comets, and work with a robotic arm as we learn how astronauts use robots to work on satellites. Come join us on our mission through outer space! For ages 7-11.
Jr. Investigative Team
“Hey there, future Science Explorers, do we have the camp for you!” Join our team of curious tiny-techs as we explore a new theme each day. We will create an edible ocean, experiment with a “magic” magnet bottle, investigate butterflies, discover how birds adapt to their environments and make colorful sidewalk chalk! Children are never too young to be scientists! Half day only for ages 4-6.
