a half day camp?

Nature Detectives
AM (9:30 – 12:30)
This camp is for Junior Scientist who love to get their hands dirty! Why do millipedes squirt ink and spiders shoot hairs? Get the scoop on poop as we investigate animal evidence such as bones, scat and tracks! From deserts to savannas, forest to swamps we’ll leave no stone unturned in our quest to answer the coolest critter questions!
Simple Machines to Complex Creations
PM (1:30 – 4:30)
With current technology, today’s newest device is tomorrow’s antique! So where did it all begin? In this camp, we’ll trace complex modern inventions back to their simplest ancient roots. Discover how a super-fast indy car couldn’t exist without the invention of the knife or how there’d be no skyscrapers without the invention of the catapult. This wonderful week will take you on a trip from simple machines to complex creations!

Pick-Up & Drop-Off FAQs

  • Camp arrival begins at 9:30 am.
  • On the first day, please come inside to sign your junior scientist in and meet the staff.
  • We will give you a “pick up card” with your camper’s number. Please bring this with you when you come to pick up your child.
  • For morning campers, we will meet you outside at 12:30, in the carpool lane. If your child is attending full day or an afternoon session, we will be outside to meet you in the carpool lane at 4:30.
  • If your child will be picked up by somebody who does not have their pick up card, they must be listed on the authorized pick up list and have a photo ID. We apologize for any inconvenience, but your children’s safety is our number one priority.
