Summer Camps for ages 7-11:
Ready, Set, Science! (R)
We’ve taken our after-school club programs from 2017-18 and turned them into a fun-filled week-long camp! Each day we’ll explore a different topic. We’ll make exciting gadgets as we explore electricity. Build a circuit to create a buzzer, make an electromagnet, create a device to detect static charge and construct a working water wheel. Become chemists as we get elbow deep in chemistry. Discover the secret colors in candy, conduct heat sensitive experiments to make “mood slime”, and make a mixture that acts like a liquid AND a solid. Create a chemical reaction to launch film canister rockets, whip up some fizzy bath poppers and mix up a bubbling density concoction. Become engineers as we explore some marvelous machines and discover how they make work easier and more fun! Compete with your friends in a pulley race, construct a lever to make a cool catapult, and explore gears that make wind-up toys. Finally, we’ll create colorful beach bags using chromatography, make super sidewalk chalk and build solar ovens! For children ages 7-11.
Fizz, Bang, Boom, Bot (F)
What do you get when you take the physics of motion, add in some electrifying experiments, and mix it up with some chemistry? Everyone has a blast! In our half day camp you’ll create your own motorized invention, experiment with light and flight, make your own kaleidoscope and experiment with giant floating bubbles. Stay for the full day and build your own motorized robot, use chromatography to separate the colors in candy, mix up some crazy chemical reactions, build an electric game, investigate the effects of air pressure, and compete in a tall tower engineering competition! For children ages 7-11.
Potions, Powders & Polymers (P)
Is it science or magic? You’ll find out! In our half day camp you’ll create erupting foam monsters, conduct amazing air pressure experiments, dig for hidden treasures, investigate the science of illusions and build spectroscopes to view the spectrum of different types of light. Stay for the full day and we’ll reveal many mysteries of science as we investigate creepy creatures, learn troll tricks, capture a rainbow in a bottle, make instant snow, mix up glowing slime and conduct lab tests on mystery substances. For children ages 7-11.
Take a Dive (T)
Dive into the world of marine biology and oceanography! In our morning day camp you’ll dissect a real shark, participate in a fisherman’s challenge, examine the anatomy of a fish and learn the ancient technique of gyotaku or “fish rubbing”, learn to survive at sea with a homemade solar still, create a kelp forest and make your own submarine. Stay for the full day camp and come face-to-face with some unique sea creatures! You’ll complete a squid dissection, bring to life genuine Triassic Triops, conduct a whale adaptations lab, and examine many weird wonders that live under the sea! For children ages 7-11.
Summer Camps for ages 4-6:
Jr. Explorers ages 4-6 – Half Day only (E)
Do you want to be an archaeologist…a geologist…or how about a biologist ? You can be all this and more in this fun-filled camp! Each day we’ll explore a new habitat as we dig for dinosaurs in the desert, make creatures of the rainforest, create an arctic home, erupt a volcano, and go spelunking in your own cave creation. There’s so much to do in this exciting week of camp. Half day only for ages 4-6.
Jr. Explorers Daily Schedule Coming Soon
*We proudly offer our summers camps to young science enthusiasts throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland!
