Week 7: Celebrating Art

We will learn about different artists and their creative techniques. We will also be creating a permanent work of art for our school.

Campers will learn about various world musicians and explore instruments. We will also listen to music across the globe and hear the differences.


Week 9: Around the World

This week campers will learn about children from around the world as well as their customs. We hope some of our very own families can share in this event.


Week 10: Things in Motion

“What makes things go?” is the question this week. We will explore all forms of transportation and have our very own pinewood derby. Children will learn about push, pull, and friction this week.


Week 11: Survive It

This week will be a combination of field day activities which include relay races, tug-of-war, and a water balloon toss. Campers will need to use everything they learned in previous weeks to survive this week! Teamwork, critical thinking, force of motion and more.

Week 3: Jr. Engineer

Calling all inventors, builders, designers and dreamers! From wing designs to clothespin cars, curious camper minds discover what it takes to be an engineer. Throughout the week we explore engineering disciplines ranging from aerospace to electrical, with little hands working on innovative projects that engage and amaze. Curious kids explore how engineers problem solve to address environmental crises, use nature to inspire inventions, and complete complex circuits to light up the night sky.


Week 6: Jr. Astronaut

Three, two, one…blast off! It’s time to fall in line for astronaut training! Campers dive in by earning their helmets and jet packs as they discover what it takes to make it in outer space. Next up: Escape Earth’s gravity to explore the Sun, the Moon, and many of the solar system’s interesting features. From launching Alka-Seltzer rockets to creating satellite spinners, budding space explorers learn the ropes as they prepare to take off to infinity and beyond!


Week 8: Jr. Physicist

Unlock the forces that drive our universe! From mastering matter to exploring fundamental forces, future-physicists learn through hands-on projects such as designing a gravity maze and constructing a kaleidoscope. Topics like magnetism, density, and friction come alive! Kids love rocking out on their homemade rubber guitar and going for the high score on their DIY pinball game. Through exploration of exciting physics concepts, kids develop a better understanding of nature and the world around them.


Week 10: Kids Crime Lab

Join the CSI team as we investigate the mysteries of the living world through forensic biology. Designed as a suspense-building “whodunit” experience, Kids Crime Lab guides campers through the discovery of clues and the tackling of challenges tied to topics such as cellular structure and DNA. From bacterium to blood type, kids learn how to interpret data and draw conclusions necessary to crack the case. Secret message glasses, microscopes, and DIY lab kits are just a few of the CSI tools that campers create and take home for further crime scene investigations!
