Rising 1st-6th Graders
9 am - 3 pm
Sign up for 1 week or sign up for all 4:
What’s cooler than making plastic out of milk, growing some sweet crystals, and exploding Diet Coke? Not much! This week is all about experimenting with chemical reactions! We won’t just be showing campers what happens when you mix two substances, they’ll get to blow some things up themselves!
This camp is all about figuring out “who done it!” We’ll explore various forensic techniques such as fingerprinting, DNA extraction, chromatography, and more. Perhaps campers will even be able to use their newfound knowledge and skills to solve a mystery of their own!
Are robots going to take over the world? Maybe we’ll find out in this hands-on week full of robots. Campers will get to learn about robots, play with some robots, and then get to design and build their own robots!
Humans are complicated creatures, and what better way to begin to understand them than by getting to know ourselves? Campers will get to take an in-depth look at the biology that makes them unique, including fingerprinting and maybe even some DNA.
Camps are $350 per week
Before/aftercare available for $10/day
How to Register:
Click HERE for the Registration Portal. Click on the camp title(s) you want, and then make sure to select the section of camp corresponding to the grade your child will be entering in the fall.
Each child needs an individual login, but multiple accounts can use the same parent's email address.
Refunds can be requested until 14 days before a particular camp begins, minus a 10% nonrefundable registration fee.
Transfers from one week to another are of equal value and can be made through the registration site without penalty, as long as there is space. Each section is capped at 20 students, and registration remains open until the camp is filled. We will pull from the wait list in the event that spaces open. If you are offered a space off the waitlist, you must accept it quickly or be moved to the bottom of the list.
Before and after care can be added for each day individually, until the Friday before the week camp starts. Registration covers either or both on a given day, and is nonrefundable. Extended care begins at 8AM and ends at 4PM.
Entering payment information requires a popup; you may need to temporarily turn off your popup blocker.
