Our 2020 Camp Themes
Get ready to gear up with robots in this advanced robotics camp! Through the use of Lego Mindstorms, campers will form robotics teams to brainstorm, design specialized robots, and learn about the mechanical aspects of robots using gears, gear ratios, torque, hydraulics, and pneumatics! Hands-on experiments and robot-building time provides children the opportunity to examine their robots!
Shake up a flask of fun in the lab and become a junior chemist! Learn to recognize chemical reactions and mix up a few reactive ingredients for some sensational results. Check out the colors of chemistry with the power of pH paper and create a stopper-popping reaction. Probe the properties of light and discover some unusual applications of glow-in-the-dark technology.
Digging for Dinos (Preschool)
***Updated for Summer 2020*** Come and dig for dinosaur bones and make your very own dinosaur teeth.

Inspire the inventor and scientist in you! Campers will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, tips from famous inventors and the most important of all----their mind! With a little bit of ingenuity children will create catapults and forts, and even construct their own working Light Sabers to take home!!
My First Lab for Preschoolers
Junior Scientists will take in science around them in this brand new Mad Science camp for preschoolers! Step into an astronauts shoes as we travel to space, work your muscles as we learn about our skeletons, and catch your shadow as we look at light! A Mad Science symphony will take place as we listen to how music is made and magnet exploration will help everything stick together!
NASA Camp: Academy for Future Space Explorers
Set your future space explorers on a trajectory from our Earth’s atmosphere to the outer reaches of our solar system! This hands-on program brings them closer to the stars, planets, comets, and more. They learn about living in space, getting away from gravity, looking for space phenomena, and they participate in a rocket launch!

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!
Red Hot Robots
Make your own working robot during this fun-filled week of discovery. You'll learn about the inner workings of these fascinating machines, play with super-cool robots and use your imagination to design and build your own robot creation. (Camp includes a BRAND NEW functioning, electronic robot take-home) plus a $25 Materials Fee Ages 7-12
The Science of Slime!
We’ll set up the Mad Science Lab for Jr Scientists to mix, brew and mush up several batches of Slime! That's right; this 1 day camp is all about creating gooey globs of fun, better known as slime. With the help of Mad Scientist instructors, Jr Scientists will get to whip up several different slime recipes and spend the day learning about polymers. Finishing with the Slime Olympics!
