Science
 
Empower your child to combine outdoor adventures with science exploration. Campers will head outside to explore insects and plants, conduct fun science experiments and stay active walking and running. Projects include a wind propeller, a hydraulic mini-pump, cordage, and a flying contraption to launch in a 7' wind tube. While we talk about renewable energy, we will enjoy solar-oven treats. Sign up for both AM and PM camps to experience all of the activities and get the continuous camp experience for a fun and awesome week!
