Rockin’ Concoctions! 

We’ve taken our after-school club topics from 2021-2022 and turned them into a fun-filled week-long camp! We’ll explore the science of kitchen chemistry, travel back in time to discover the mysteries of the Earth, examine the world of wacky creatures, and become a Science Explorers CSI! Half day campers will discover the amazing transformation of cream to butter, grow crystals, erupt volcanoes, mine for gemstones, create slug-slime, learn how to lift fingerprints and extract DNA from bananas. 

Full day campers will continue the fun as they participate in a dinosaur dig, create cast fossils, make gooey gum drops, freeze their own slushies, solve more forensic cases, mix up a vampire bat treat to eat and examine the anatomy of a frog and complete an optional dissection!

Take a Dive  

Dive into the world of marine biology and oceanography! In our half day camp you’ll dissect a real shark, participate in a fisherman's challenge, examine the anatomy of a fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing”, learn to survive at sea with a homemade solar still, create a kelp forest and make your own submarine. Stay for the full day camp and come face-to-face with some unique sea creatures!  You'll complete a squid dissection, bring to life genuine Triassic Triops, conduct a whale adaptations lab, and examine many weird wonders that live under the sea!
