2020 Winter Camp Themes
Design, build, and test are our strategies for Monday during our Super STEAM day! Parachutes, pin holes, and hidden message will pique curiosity for our day campers.
By the end of our Great Reactions Day, our campers will know all about mixtures and solutions and how to tell the difference! We will look at causes of rust, small explosions and static electricity.
Be An Artist Day
Visual illusions and color study will fill our camp day on Tuesday! Be An Artist is the theme that gives campers chances to draw, mix, and get a little messy.
Super Space Day
We will map the stars, scale down the solar system, and design our own straw rockets during this fun-filled day. If your child is curious about space, please join us for an out-of-this-world Wednesday!
States of Matter
Solid, liquids and gases – what happens with ice, hot and cold air – and how easily change happens right before our eyes! If your child is interested on why physical changes occur making things appear and disappear join us on Thursday!
The Great Outdoors
Does your child know about all the parts of the tree? Our day campers will study trees as habitats and how nature provides color ways to camouflage its residents on our nature-filled Thursday.
