Week 2: Ocean Exploration
This week is all about the ocean! Campers will learn interesting facts about sea life and the ecosystems that these sea creatures live in. The children will make a class diorama to display what they have learned about the ocean.
Week 3: Animal Planet
Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! Campers will learn all about different animals and their habitats, as well as endangered species. Campers are in for a special treat this week with an exotic animal exhibition coming to visit.
Week 4: Our Nation’s Birthday
Campers will learn about the history of our country and the meaning of Independence Day. They will get to paint their very own flag and will learn the names of all 50 states. Campers are encouraged to celebrate the holiday by wearing patriotic colors – red, white and blue!
Week 5: Multicultural Week
This week is all about culture! Parents are invited to come in to talk about their traditions and share a typical cultural food with the class. Campers will learn about other languages, the names of countries, and where they are located on the globe.
Week 6: Space Explorer
Get ready to blast off to outer space! During this camp week, we’ll learn all about astronauts and the solar system! Campers will create a solar system diorama and will learn the names of the planets and fun facts about each one.
Week 7: Camping Adventure
Are you ready to experience the great outdoors? This week campers will learn about nature and life in the forest, and will pick up some great survival tactics. To complete the camping experience, campers will play a fishing game and make s’mores!
Week 8: Artistic Creations
This week is about making masterpieces! Campers will paint under the table like Michelangelo, create watercolor pictures like Monet, and simply have the freedom to express themselves artistically! They will learn all about different artists and the art they created.
Week 9: Going Green
Why do we recycle? What can we recycle? What happens when we recycle? Campers will learn the answers to all these questions and more! They will create consumables for the classroom and will learn how we can take better care of our planet.
Primary STEM Themes (Ages 4-5)
Weeks 1 and 6: Junior Astronaut
Three, two, one…blast off! It’s time to fall in line for astronaut training! Campers dive in by earning their helmets and jet packs as they discover what it takes to make it in outer space. Next up: Escape Earth’s gravity to explore the Sun, the Moon, and many of the solar system’s interesting features. From launching Alka-Seltzer rockets to creating satellite spinners, budding space explorers learn the ropes as they prepare to take off to infinity and beyond!
Weeks 2 and 7: Junior Engineer
Calling all inventors, builders, designers and dreamers! From wing designs to clothespin cars, curious camper minds discover what it takes to be an engineer. Throughout the week we explore engineering disciplines ranging from aerospace to electrical, with little hands working on innovative projects that engage and amaze. Curious kids explore how engineers problem solve to address environmental crises, use nature to inspire inventions, and complete complex circuits to light up the night sky.
Weeks 3 and 8: Junior Game Maker
Game on! With the development of logic skills serving as the foundation for fun, budding programmers learn the basics of computer science while creating digitally interactive puzzles and exciting video games. From designing custom characters to sequencing motion blocks, kids “crack the code” using software such as ScratchJr and Tynker. With off-line projects like mini skee-ball and labyrinth, campers delve into a world filled with strategy, logic, and luck!
Week 5: Junior Physicist
Unlock the forces that drive our universe! From mastering matter to exploring fundamental forces, future-physicists learn through hands-on projects such as designing a gravity maze and constructing a kaleidoscope. Topics like magnetism, density, and friction come alive! Kids love rocking out on their homemade rubber guitar and going for the high score on their DIY pinball game. Through exploration of exciting physics concepts, kids develop a better understanding of nature and the world around them.
