Monday, March 29 & April 5

Your body is one incredible machine! Learn how we connect with our world as we play with our senses. Hands-on experiments will help us find out how muscles allow us to move, how our lungs fill with air, and what happens to food after we put it in our mouths.

Candy Land

Tuesday, March 30 & April 6

Who’s ready for an adventure to the Candy Castle? Investigate the chemistry of your favorite candies and sweets as we dissolve, explode, build with, and—yes—eat candy all day long. You may need to brush your teeth after this sweet camp!

Mouse Trap

Wednesday, March 31 & April 7

Can you use a toy car to turn on a light or dominoes to launch a paper plane? We’ll explore the science of simple machines and the engineering design process to create hilariously convoluted machines!


Thursday, April 1 & April 8

If you love to solve mysteries, then this camp is for you! Sharpen your powers of observation as we explore how forensic scientists crack cases. Explore fingerprinting, DNA, and deductive thinking to investigate this challenging whodunit!


Friday, April 2 & April 9

Our world is made up of diverse biomes with their own unique plants, animals, and terrain. Learn how plate tectonics have changed the Earth’s surface throughout time, and discover what makes up our atmosphere as you compete against other campers to gain territory for your team!
