(Kindergarten - 3rd grade)
Click Here for Schedule and Registration Links

Join us in a Covid-conscious environment for fun, play, and learning, each week with a different spin! 

 

  • Campers will explore and learn about a new topic each week, through structured activities, hands-on crafts, and open play time

  • Spend time outdoors each day (weather permitting) at a nearby park

  • Led by experienced STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) educators

  • New topics for each track cycle

  • Half-day or full-day!

We take Covid-19 seriously and follow strict protocols to keep your kids, our staff, and our community as safe as we can.  

  • Staff is 100% fully vaccinated

  • Group size is small (10 kids), and children only interact with children in their own group

  • HEPA air filters are always running

  • Masks always required inside

  • All food is eaten outside (weather permitting)

  • Children will not be in the open play area with any children outside of their group

  • All policies subject to change as the covid situation changes

Camps in November & December

ARTstronaut

Your young artist will learn about the elements of art (line, texture, color, etc) while exploring the wonders of space. Campers will use their imagination and creativity to make their own planet, paint galaxies, and design a rocket using recycled materials. We hope you will join us for a galaxy full of art fun!

Astronaut Training

We are now accepting astronaut trainees for a week of cosmically fun camp activities! Astronaut trainees will learn how to speed through our obstacle course, create a device to take scientific samples of asteroids, sample various "space foods," and design and decorate their own bottle rocket.

Winter Light Explorers

In this special winter track out camp, we are inspired by holiday celebrations and the winter solstice to investigate the science of light! Campers will explore how light travels using flashlights, mirrors, prisms, lenses, and LED circuits as they learn about colors, shadows, and basic electrical circuits. In addition to these hands-on experiments, each participant will also make and bring home their own kaleidoscope and light-up greeting card.

Camps in January, February, & March

Marvelous Makers

Does your child love to tinker and build? We will begin with a “breakerspace” day when kids will have a chance to deconstruct toys and household items to investigate their parts! They will apply what they learned throughout the rest of the week as they participate in STEM building challenges using cardboard, K’nex, and other household items, experiment with basic circuitry to build a bristlebot, and create a light-up greeting card to bring home. 

Winter Wonderland Art

We think this camp is going to be pretty... cool! During this camp, young artists will learn about climate and physical phenomena like aurora borealis and snowy weather while creating fun wintery artworks. They will create themed clay pinch pots, paint winter landscapes, and end the week with a make your own slushie party! 

Glorious Goop

Do you have a budding scientist at home who loves to concoct potions and create experiments? This is the week for them! We will introduce basic chemistry concepts as we explore ooey gooey fizzy and fun creations. During the week, beginner chemists will make slime, experiment with different states of matter, design their own experiments, and even create some (kid-safe) explosions!

Kate

Leslie is a recent NC State grad! She studied Environmental Sciences, Marine Science, and Science Communication. She is an experienced environmental educator from the coast, where she planned youth programs focused on ocean conservation and marine technology. For the past two years, Leslie has been “diving” into marine science research. She even participated in a deep-sea research cruise! On her days off, you can find Leslie picking up litter along waterways and enjoying water sports like kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding. 

Kate moved to Durham from the D.C. area in August along with her husband and two and four year old daughters. She is a former elementary school science teacher and has also taught and led a variety of summer camps, environmental education classes, and outdoor adventure programs. Kate is loving being back in North Carolina where she went to college and met her husband and is thrilled to be a part of the Over the Moon team!
