Roll up your sleeves, put on your makers cap, and get ready to create! This is our most hands-on camp! Who can build the strongest bridge? Can your bridge withstand the shake rattle and roll challenge? Explore the world of birds and beasts with birdhouse building and our super bug investigation. Enter the Mad Science chemistry lab and mix, mash, and brew concoctions to create cool sidewalk chalk and bath fizzers! Assemble and control pulleys, levers, catapults, simple machines, and megapinchers! Campers will discover the wonders of photography and make their own chromatography art. It’s a week packed with non-stop science fun!

For this virtual camp, we'll pack up a bag for you of science activities to do at home! Your Mad Scientist will lead campers in demonstrations and activities and set them off on their discovery with science activities. Your Mad Scientist will be online the whole time to guide them and answer questions as the conduct their activities some independently and some as a group. Conducted via Zoom or similar. Children entering K and 1st may need assistance from a grown-up at home.
