2013 Science Camp:
Science Camp offers your child an exciting and fun opportunity to explore the world around us. “Water, Water Everywhere” is the theme for rising Kindergarteners. They will discover the wonders of water in our bodies, in the ground, and in the air. Older campers will experience a different topic each day with engaging experiments, activities and games. Topics include physics, engineering and technology, chemistry, biology and environmental science. All camps are hands-on and emphasize active learning and fun.
