Week 2: I Wanna Be…A Zookeeper!

Welcome to The Launch Zoo! Follow in the footsteps of a zookeeper as we visit extraordinary animals and discover the science behind what makes them special. By simulating a stroll through the grounds at the fictitious Launch Zoo, campers tour exhibits ranging from butterflies to bears. It’s feeding time! Let’s head over to the Savanna exhibit and learn about the carnivorous lion, herbivorous giraffe, and omnivorous ostrich. Wondering about locomotion!? Let’s investigate how snakes slither, lemurs leap, and falcons fly. Questions about camouflage!? Let’s create a take-home model of a color-changing chameleon! Each day we examine animals that reveal unique and extreme adaptations. Kids begin to understand how the environment can shape a species’ appearance and diet, all while raising awareness of the importance of conservation efforts worldwide

Additional Topics Include: Classifying Animals, Habitats, Predator vs. Prey, Echolocation, Life Cycle, Metamorphosis, Nocturnal vs. Diurnal, Night Vision

Week 9: I Wanna Be…An Explorer!

Onward ho!! Let’s travel the globe and explore unique sites to learn about the many wonders our planet holds. Campers journey deep into the earth to witness how volcanoes formed islands, dive to the deepest depths of the ocean to discover how tectonic plates formed the Mariana trench, and swing along treetops of a rainforest to explore this amazing biome! From recreating cave art to building motorized tornado spinners, this camp offers exciting hands-on projects that reinforce the scientific topics of the day. Just like past explorers such as Magellan and Sacagawea, our little adventurers take bold steps to make their very own worldly discoveries.
