    Super Secret Spy Training Camp | July 6 - 9 | July 19 - 23
     If you missed out last year on this fun adventurous camp, it’s not too late to get the training you need to earn your Super Spy Status! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to explore glow-in-the-dark science, go on scavenger hunts, and decode clues that lead to top secret messages! Get those spy decoding notebooks out and be ready for some secret agent spy training as we sneak through obstacle courses and use our observation skills to figure out clues to a top secret mystery! Sorry, we can only reveal this all-new mystery to campers with their special agent IDs.


    Super Slime Camp | July 6 - 9 | July 12 - 16
    Let there be slime! By far, slime is the most requested science experiment! What’s not fun about slime? It’s slimy, stretching, sometimes bouncy, and the coolest polymer around! Each day we will explore a different type based on all new fun themes. We will do some cool art labs inspired by the day’s theme, too! So no need to ask if we are going to do slime today because we definitely will!


    Art Lab! | July 12 - 16
    This year I am excited to introduce the sibling to Rock-It Science, ART LAB! Science is a highly concrete subject in which students rarely have the opportunity to be creative. By integrating art projects into your science lessons, you can create super cool art work and learn some super cool science too! Join us as we create beautiful art inspired by volcanoes, insects, dinosaurs , and more!


    Space Camp | July 26 - 30
    If you can’t get enough space or missed the first outer space camp this is the camp for you! This time around we will explore Saturn’s rings, make edible rocket ships, and experiment with galaxy eruptions. We will add a few new surprises to our space room too! 


    Beach Week Camp | July 26 - 30
    Put on your shades and get ready for some seaside fun. We will explore soapy sea foam, go on a seashell hunt, and make our very own underwater bottle scene. Join us as we celebrate beach life!


    Shark Week | August 2 - 6
    Today there are more than 465 known species of sharks living in our oceans. We will sink our teeth into interesting facts about sharks and create shark habitat bottles. Join us as we maneuver through a seaweed course, create shark art, and conduct experiments that will teach us about these beautiful ocean creatures. 


    Blast Off Camp | August 2 - 6
    Whether it’s blasting objects through the air or exploring the cosmos, all kids love to see and send things flying! Air rockets, Mento eruptions, baking soda explosions, are just a few ways we will get things soaring. We may even sneak a little engineering lesson in but our campers may not notice because they will be too busy hurling plastic bottles, planes, rockets,and more through the air.


    Animal Planet | August 9 - 13
    Who doesn’t love our big beautiful world of animals. We will go on a wild animal adventure and explore some domestic animals too. Get ready to collect animal badges as we search and learn fun facts about Giraffes, zebras, and many other creatures. 


    Under the Stars | August 9 - 13
    There’s so much to discover under the stars! Glow in the dark planets, campfire activities, and stardust slime will be just a few fun labs we will explore. Join us for a week under the stars!
