Information

There are a great number of topics covered in our week-long camps.

Themes include:

3, 2, 1… Blast Off!
This is your chance to be a rocket scientist! Discover the science needed for rockets & learn what it takes to study space from the ground & from the air. Investigate the four forces of flight, learn the Rocket Safety Code and explore the science involved in rocket design. In addition, experience the life of an astronaut as you suit up for a space flight. Explore the farthest reaches of our solar system! Recommended for children ages 5 to 12.

Claws, Codes, & Constellations
Come prepared to do some decoding, as there is an entire unit on secret messages, where you will learn how to communicate using special codes. Children will gain an increased appreciation for the earth and discover what role science can play in preserving our planet. Learn about the Science of Sport and what football players, ballet dancers, and scientists have in common. Explore the world of nature and the next day embark on a space mission and learn how astronauts live in Space. Recommended for children ages 5 to 10.

Moving with Science
Children will learn about cameras. How does film capture light and store images? They’ll mix, mush and brew together different chemicals to create things they can use in a hands-on outdoor chemistry lab. They’ll walk on the wild side and learn all sorts of facts about birds and bugs. Teamwork and an obstacle course will lead the children to discover how useful simple machines can be. Finally, they will get a chance to build bridges and a four foot high Geodesic Dome when they become junior engineers for the day. Recommended for children ages 5 to 10.

Chemicals, Cells & Crime
Become a Mad Science Investigator. Campers will use forensic science to track down an elusive ice cream thief. Step into a chemist’s shoes, mix and dissolve a variety of everyday ingredients to create amazing exothermic and endothermic reactions. Learn the basics of the code of life, and make a model of a cell including the organelles studied. Explore fundamental “nuts and bolts” of chemistry, starting with the principle of “chemically counting”. Recommended for children ages 5 to 12.

Red Hot Robots
Join us for a week of fun with amazing robots! Learn about the uses of robots in our world and spend time experimenting with super cool red-hot robots. Discover the science of circuits and how robots use sensors to explore things around them. Use your skills to build your very own working robot to take home with you! Recommended for children ages 6 to 12.

Secret Agent Lab
Enter the mysterious and multifaceted world of Secret Agent Lab. Come discover detection - use decoding skills to analyze evidence and become a mystery solver. Have fun with case-breaking science! Recommended for children ages 5-12.

Eureka! The Inventor's Camp
Inventing means curiosity, practicality, necessity, cooperation, and dreaming! Children will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important of all – their mind. With a little bit of ingenuity children will create catapults and forts, construct working light sticks to take home and assemble a set of circuits with batteries and light bulbs. While Thomas Edison said “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration", this camp is 100% FUN! Recommended for children ages 5-12.

NASA Camp 

 Calling all future space explorers! Children will go on a trajectory from our Earth's atmopshere to the outer reaches of our solar system! This hands-on program will bring them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and much much more.  Learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and participate in a rocket launch. Recommended for children ages 5-10.

 

Brixology Camp
Set out the foundation for our next generation of makers! Kids learn about different types of engineering and then team up to construct a different engineering-themed project using LEGO® bricks.  They learn about aerospace engineering while assembling a space station. They explore mechanical engineering as they build boats and vehicles. That’s not all, from carnival rides to drawing machines, mechanical animals to truss bridges, your future engineer will build upon their creativity to solve real-world design challenges, while developing their problem-solving and team-building skills. Let the tinkering begin! Recommended for children ages 6-12.
