Eco Explorers: Designing Your Sustainable Future

Camp Descriptions:

Be a Scientist Series: A week-long, series-style camp that is designed for campers to experience what it is like to be a different kind of scientist each day throughout the week.  YOU'RE the scientist! Become a Chemist, Crime Scene Investigator, Inventor, Zoologist, and a Geologist during this fun-filled week at camp. Learn about and experience each field of science as we meet different scientists throughout the week. 

Mini Maker Camp: Do you consider yourself a master bulider? Are you fascinated by how things are made, how they work and redesigning them? Then this camp is for you! We will test your limits of design and engineering during this Master Builders camp for kids with a LEGO twist. 

Eco Explorers Camp Series: Become an Eco Explorer and join us for an introduction to exploring the use of sustainable, natural and ecological materials in engineering and technological advancement. Campers will also discover how the natural world influences our survival on Planet Earth. The week is broken up into 5 topics for your exploration!
