Water Wonders

Splish! Splash! What kinds of animals live underwater?  Join us as we explore puddles, lakes, rivers and oceans.  Design whale outfits and create tadpoles that become frogs. Get your bathing suits ready and prepare to make a splash!

Move It!

Our world is in constant motion!  Investigate how things move—from our own bodies, to plants and animals, to machines, to entire planets!  Participate in a Moon dance and learn all about gravity, then create your own model of the planets moving about in our solar system.  Put on your dancing shoes—this camp will move you!
