Summer Camp 2021

Our summer camp is the perfect way to keep your child engaged and entertained during the summer months. Our STEM summer camp offers a wide range of activities to stimulate creative and critical thinking skills. We provide a fun and safe environment for children to explore science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Through hands-on activities, campers will be able to build, explore, and discover the world around them. We also incorporate outdoor activities to help kids stay active and have a great time. Come join us and experience all the fun and learning our STEM summer camp has to offer!

Summer Camp 2022

LEGO Robotics Week June 19-23

Level 2 & Level 3

In this camp, you will learn how to design, build, and program robots to compete in challenges and earn points throughout the week! Work with your team to challenge yourself and earn prizes. No experience is needed; high school robotics team members will teach you how to build your own lego robot and program it to navigate a field full of challenges. With your robots, you will work to find solutions to real world problems that face cities and towns such as transportation, accessibility, and natural disasters.

Week 1 July 10-14

Level 1: Good to Grow! 

CAMP FULL

What do kids, larvae, eggs, germs and crystals have in common? They grow! Do all plants grow in dirt? What food do bones need to grow stronger? Are bugs good parents? We’ll set up hydro gardens, germ nurseries and a crystal garden and explore the many ways life grows up and all around us! 

Level 2: Oh, Grow Up!

Bigger, stronger, taller: everything grows: from kids to larvae, eggs to germs, and seeds to crystals. We'll explore life’s race to the finish line: Do all plants need soil to grow? But do only living things grow? How can we grow the food of the future? We’ll set up an insect hatchery, hydro gardens, germ nurseries and meet with scientists to explore the many ways life grows up and all around us! 

Week 2 July 17-21

Level 1: It’s a Jungle out there! 

CAMP FULL

Where does it rain every day, chocolate trees grow, and lizards and snakes fly? In the rainforests of the world! Find out how all kinds of creatures live together; from frogs in treetops, slithering snakes, extra slimy slugs, and shimmering butterflies, to plants that root in the air or trap their food! We’ll plant, craft, paint, snack, build and explore our way from the bottom of the forest to the highest canopy of treetops!

Week 3 July 24-28

Level 1: Messy Art and Science

CAMP FULL

Discover easy, fun, messy, amazing, and very colorful, art from science: Put on your safety goggles and painting smocks and get ready for slimy explosions, spinning colors, blooming liquids and colorful crystals. Explore why matter matters when you create and how gravity works when you sculpt, how motion is a must and where chemistry and creativity come together through easy, imaginative art activities.


 

Levels 2& 3: Cardboard Engineers! 

Artists create beautiful works out of cardboard, designers and architects prototype in cardboard, materials scientists explore the amazing properties and possibilities of cardboard… and then there are kids like you, the ultimate curious creators. What can you design and build with a pile of salvaged cardboard and a variety of tools, techniques, adhesives, and construction supplies?

Test tensile and load-bearing strength tests, explore basic principles of construction engineering and architecture, apply math and measuring skills, and learn about the design engineering process 

Each day includes skills-building activities, project prompts and team challenges, and open build time to make projects while practicing problem-solving, team communication, and being creative. Cardboard Engineers develops kids' creativity and pushes them to build incredible projects that are all theirs from conception to completion.


Week 4 July 31-August 4

 

Level 1: Shark Pups Week

CAMP FULL

From megalodons to pygmy sharks, go above and below the waves with sharks mighty and tiny! Learn where they live, what they eat, and how they breathe under water. Be like a shark yourself and swim through shipwrecks, reefs, and the deepest parts of the ocean. Experience your fishy senses and underwater neighbors through hands-on experiments, labs, and jaw-some arts and crafts. Don’t miss out on this shark-tastic week!

 

Level 2: Shark Week 

Are you fascinated by all things shark? This camp will be filled to the gills with fun, fascinating science by introducing marine ecology and shark biology through hands-on labs and investigations. We’ll explore marine habitats and what dangers they hold…and face! Learn to appreciate the ocean’s most fearsome and feared finned predators. Conduct a mock tagging experiment, create shark art projects, Q/A with a marine scientist, and try a spiny dogfish shark dissection. Don’t  miss out on this shark-tastic week!

Week 5 August 7-11

 

Level 1: Dino Detectives 

CAMP FULL

When giants ruled the earth and leviathans patrolled the seas life on earth was very different! Unearth real fossils, solve prehistoric puzzles and even meet some living fossils! Use real field dig tools to excavate jaws and claws. Build Jurassic habitats, discover how fossils are formed, what life was like in the prehistoric world and hear some of the best dinosaur stories around.

Level 2: Dig This! 

Get the dirt on dirt and the scoop on all things underfoot. Find out about the hidden secrets of the underground. Dig up rocks and fossils and learn about ancient civilizations, and prehistoric life. Experiment with different kinds of clay to make the best cave art. Geology rocks and Dinosaurs roar in this time-traveling trip to the world underground.
