Do you love all the wild creatures from the forests to the sea? This camp is for you! Get to know natures wildest and most amazing animals through their pelts, claws, bones and even poop! Make a wild treat for a critter and one for yourself. Meet real live animals and learn about the way they live. Some outdoor time, weather permitting.

Wednesday, Feb 21: Artists at work!
Get your hands on some of the most amazing art materials around! Experiment with fun and unusual media: Turn a chemical reaction into a surprising masterpiece, use real artist colors, and learn tricks of the trade! One tip: Wear an old sweatshirt, because it’s going to get messy in this creative and fun-filled art camp! Some outdoor time, weather permitting.

Thursday, Feb 22: Monsters Alive!
Explore the science and inventions of one of the world’s most favorite monster stories: Frankenstein! Make mini robots, automata, masks, and creatures, play with (safe) sparks of life and animated electrified play dough as you invent, imagine, and create!

Invent your own secret superhero identity complete with costume and name! You and your team of fellow superheroes will outsmart the villain who hid the great museum treasure with your superhero powers of hearing, strength, and invisibility!
