Engaging Engineers
Engineering June 17 - 21

Calling all master builders! when you want to know how things work, what do you do? you take them apart! Let's spend a week putting the pieces of engineering together in a way that will make you never want to "Lego" of learning.

Tech-tastic Adventures
Technology June 24 - 28

Campers will log in to a whole new way of looking at coding. this is coding: unplugged.

Tech-tastic Adventures, part 2!
Technology July 8 - 12

Techies unite! Come learn about the tech behind stop movies, circuitry and more while you make new connections with the campers around you.

GROSS! Anatomy
Biology July 15 - 19

Campers will go wild as they explore the inner workings of both animal and human physiology.

Outdoor Explorers
Natural Science July 22 - 26

We will rock you. Campers will learn about the science of the great outdoors and this wonderful world we live in.

Weird Science
Chemistry July 29 - Aug 2

Come join us for all things ooey, gooey, and gross as we become mad scientists for a week.

The Quest-ioneers!
Science Fair Aug 5 - 9

Bill Nye has got nothing on us. Our little scientists will create their own experiments, and enjoy the positive reactions from their fellow campers.

Engineering

Campers will explore ancient-to-modern machines, buildings, structures, aerospace, and architecture during the 2 weeks of engineering.  

Technology

During these weeks, campers will work with various computer technology to make stop motion movies, 5 minute productions, as well as learn about digital responsibility. Also Your camper will experiment with a variety of circuitry, as well as computer coding consuls and programs, as well as video game design.

Biology

This week will focus on the systems of the animals and humans, as well as learn about the phsyiology of their bodies (can you say fun with physics?).

Natural Science 

Get ready to have a 'gneiss' time this week as we learn all about Planet Earth and beyond! Campers will explore our natural earth as well as the stars, planets, and galaxies, and the physics behind it all.

Chemistry

Are you ready to unleash your own mad scientist? We are! This week your camper will get to know all about chemical reactions and have fun doing it!

Science Fair/Quest-ioneers

Campers will become their own science explorers as they become familiar with the scientific process as they ask who? what? when? where? why? and how?. For our older campers, this will be an opportunity for them to learn how to, and to actually create, an effective science fair project!

Field trips, snacks/lunch, and swimming are always part of our weekly sessions!
