Our Half-Day Camp Themes
Eureka! The Inventor's Camp
Creative Contraption Warning! Each day you’ll be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind. You'll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege, build amazing planes that fly through the air, and assemble a working light saber to take home!
Secret Agent Lab
This program features fun-filled, hands-on, secret agent-themed science activities that allow kids to play detective, explore forensic science, sharpen their surveillance skills, and crack encrypted messages. Kids become super sleuths!
NASA Journey into Outer Space
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!
Chemicals, Cells & Crime
Children explore the inside of the body and learn about the organ systems and the cells that it's composed of. They discover cool chemical reactions, and how to solve a crime, in this hands-on summer science adventure!
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!
3,2,1.... Blast Off!
This program focuses on rockets and the physics of rocket flight. After learning the model rocket safety code, campers build ten different types of rockets and participate in the launching of 6 different rockets.
Rockin' Rockets & Aerodynamics
From the earliest flying machines to the first rocket flights, this hands-on program for children (ages 7-12) will allow them to build many different flying devices, see how Newton's laws of motion help explain how things move and how rockets fly, and show them how amazing our Milky Way is.
Makers and Builders
Take an in-depth look at the science behind everyday machines and cool science in this camp about engineering and creating. We’ll see how your Jr. Mad Scientist brings their inner engineer to life while they construct an amazing structures, learn about levers and automatons, and create their own contraptions. In the process, we’ll even become architects by building our own geodesic dome!
Little Green Thumbs (Preschool)
This five-session preschool camp offers young children (ages 3-5) an exciting introduction to basic environmental science. With each session, children enrich their understanding of how living things grow and how they interact with the environment around them, through different aspects of the garden.
Using LEGO® bricks, kids build a different engineering-themed project in each class. They explore different engineering fields, including mechanical, structural, aerospace, nautical, and bioengineering. They use critical thinking, and creative problem-solving to test and improve their creations.
Kids learn about 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. Each class also includes a make and take-home project, like a fossil reproduction, an amber time capsule, and coins from around the world!
