Rockin’ Reactions

Weeks of Aug 29, Sept 13

Beginner chemists will conduct some exciting and messy experiments while learning all about matter! Campers will experiment with solids, liquids, and gases as they learn about chemistry and how mixtures can combine to create new substances. Campers will create their own slime, bouncy balls, fizzing moon rocks, and even elephant toothpaste!

Ocean Explorers

Week of Sept 20

Junior oceanographers will spend the week exploring different ocean habitats! From investigating animals who live in tide pools to experiments to see deep sea vents in action, campers will explore the creatures and climate conditions that make each ocean habitat unique. We will  learn about human impacts on the ocean & collect discarded materials to make ocean art. Campers will also create a fish print t-shirt to take home!
