Science is Wild is a week-long MDM science satellite day camp based on outdoor explorations and investigations supplemented with labs, activities, and guest docents. 

 

This summer program provides opportunities for kids who love the outdoors to learn about and interact with nature through hands-on, interactive projects and experiences. Campers will learn to be responsible naturalists when surveying pond life, take water samples, map mini habitats, identify invasive and native plants, collect rock samples, and observe wildlife. Visits from outdoor science specialists, researchers, wardens and rangers, and dedicated naturalists round out great summer camp fun every day.

Choose Week 9 during registration for Science is Wild! camp.

 

Please note, drop off and pick up for this camp are in Orono at the Caribou Bog Outdoor Center. 

 

Level 1

Entering 1st or 2nd Grade

Week 3 July 8-12
Level 1: Hungry Hungry Scientist

Save room for the science of cooking, baking, and candy making so we can fill your bellies and your brains. Candy and gemology come together in crunchy sugar crystals. How do tiny, hard corn kernels turn into fluffy popcorn? We’ll concoct wobbly desserts, bake a sweet treat with solar power and turn milk good… or bad with chemistry! 

 

ONE SPOT LEFT!

Week 5 July 22-26
Level 1: Ocean Full of Wonders

You won’t  need a scuba suit to meet the wild, wonderful animals and plants that call our oceans home: from slippery jellies to colorful shells, fearsome sharks to glowing corals!  Haul up shipwreck treasure, and be sailor, water farmer, or even a pirate for a day. No walking the plank in this camp, just lots of wet, watery fun.

Week 7 August 4-9
Level 1: Messy Art and Science

Get  messy while creating, exploring and experimenting! Make amazing  art from science: Let the colors spin, the liquids splash, and the crystals grow!  Let chemistry, physics,  and creativity collide while you work and think like budding scientists and express yourself with easy, imaginative art activities.

Week 9 August 19-23
Level 1: Around the World in 5 Days with a Passport to Adventure

Grab your “passports” and explore the far reaching corners of our earth. Experience the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and games from different cultures.

Can we collect all the puzzle pieces, decipher maps, and figure out all the clues before time runs out?

Week 4 July 15-19
Level 2: Magic, Myths, and Monsters… Oh My!

Calling all aspiring archaeologists and magizoologists! Real and imaginary monsters like dragons, phoenixes, and unicorns have been flying around the world and our minds since the beginning of time.
