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.

Join us as we create beautiful art inspired by volcanoes, insects, dinosaurs , and more!

    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.
