Where kids can be kids - explore nature and enjoy outdoor adventures

General Camp Information

Morning Session: Rockets & Airplanes 9am - 12pm

In the morning session, children become pilots, and astrophysicists as they build a variety of airplanes, helicopters and working rockets.  Each day we will test fly a mission to determine how best to fly the fastest, furthest and with style. At the end of the week we will launch rockets with family and friends to celebrate, “one small step for mankind” but one HUGE step for our campers.


Afternoon Session: YouTube Science 12:30 - 3:30pm

The afternoon session, campers will be given different elements related to perform a YouTube Video Experiment.  All materials will be common household items such as glue, borax and water or batteries and a paper clip.  Each experiment will entertain as well as engage them in considering the properties of the materials they use to make cool things happen. Experiments will be chosen according to campers age and skill level.

NOTE: Children can be registered for the morning session, the afternoon session or for a full day.
