Summer Camps Descriptions

Here's our exciting 2018 lineup of summer camps.
Click on a topic to see a daily activity description.

Earth, Space and Beyond (Entering K-5)   

Children will discover how to send secret messages using special codes, explore their environment, and find out how science can help us to protect our planet. Your Junior Mad Scientist will learn how Newton's laws are at work in their favorite sports and join the ranks of space scientists examining the mysteries of the solar system!

Mad Inventors Camp (Entering 2-5) 

Creative Contraption Warning! This is a camp designed by you—the Inventor! 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. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts and then lay siege. Fabricate a winning Egg Drop design, construct a dancing robot, and assemble a working light saber to take home. While Thomas Edison said invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration, this camp is 100% fun! Note: This camp is open to children entering 2nd - 5th grade. 

Red Hot Robots (Entering 2-5)  

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. Experiment with sound sensing robots, line-tracking robots, and more! 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!

Rocketry Camp (Entering K-5) 

This action packed week will focus solely on rockets and the physics of rocket flight. After learning the model rocket safety code, campers will build different types of rockets and participate in rocket launches during the week-long program. Children will be divided into three groups; altitude trackers, launch preparers and launchers for rocket launches and will get the opportunity to try different roles. We recommend this camp for children entering 2nd - 5th grade; however, children entering kindergarten and 1st grade will enjoy it as well with a little more help from fellow campers or instructors. 

 Secret Agent Lab (Entering K-5)  

Ever dream of becoming a secret agent? We'll start with the basics: From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, campers have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gadgets like spy glasses! Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis! Figure out the science of forensics in a hands-on look at crime scenes! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a hands-on investigation of the science that spies use!
