2021 Summer Camp themes
Super STEAM Camp
Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics activities are completed through a variety of ideas. Why does crayon wax resist watercolors and why do some foods float and others sink? Come prepared to test the limits of objects and show some creativity in our fun five-day camp.
Chess Challenge Camp
Chess Challenge Camp is a four-day camp (Tuesday-Friday). Campers will learn chess basics and review some strategies for players who already know the rules. Our camp Kings and Queens will read fairy tales, make big planned physical moves, and study art with black and white themes.
NASA ASTRO Camp
Intergalactic planetary studies and fun for our five-day NASA ASTRO Camp. NASA-based science and engineering will teach young scientists about the states of matter, bodies in space, and gravitational pull. A variety of earth science topics will have your campers asking questions that are out of this world.
Bugs, plants, and the weather are the focus for this five-day camp. We will conduct experiments to discover what changes the sky’s colors and why are some bugs more colorful than others. Campers will discover the great outdoors by scavenging, crafting, and exploring!
