(Ages 8-14) This offering of 6 weekly sessions will give campers an opportunity to explore, investigate and discover all facets within the world of science.

This popular offering of 6 weekly themed sessions will give campers an opportunity to explore, investigate and discover all facets within the world of science. 

Each week will focus on a specific theme:
Week 1: Gardening
Week 2: Chemistry
Week 3: Transportation
Week 4: Energy
Week 5: Physics
Week 6: Animal Anatomy

Besides the talented full time staff, campers will learn from weekly guest presenters such as: George Steele, noted area naturalist; Fran Martino, Hudson River expert; and Seamus Hodgkinson, longtime Doane Stuart science teacher. Weekly field trips and an afternoon swim will also be available. 

Our goal is to create an atmosphere of learning in a fun, hands on style. Not only will we excite the future scientists but also inspire those kids, who had not yet experienced the joy of science, to want to learn more.
