Camp Sessions and Themes
Week 1: STEM
Campers spend the week acting and learning like an engineer! Through hands-on projects, campers will gain the experience and confidence they need to design and build! They will create their own projects, games, and inventions. Some of the projects include laser and 3D printing, creating race cars, roller coasters, towers, robots, marble runs, and more! Campers will also have the opportunity to code and create games on Scratch. Campers get to bring home many of their projects and designs! This week campers will be exposed to science, engineering, and technology in a fun and challenging way. 

Week 2: Art, Food, and the Environment
Campers will explore the science behind art, cooking, and the environment. They will create their own super bubble solution, crystal geodes, and outdoor pendulum paintings. They will create their own mortar for a recycled mosaic masterpiece and a fused glass piece! Campers will experiment with yeast to see how it makes bread rise, temper chocolate, make ice cream, and explore their five senses. They will investigate solar, water, and wind power through various activities and challenges. All week, campers will experiment with color, food, recycling, and green energy in a new and exciting way!
