June 26th-30th
Eureka! Inventors Camp
Inspire the inventor and scientist in you during this week of discovery and invention. 
Each day children will be given a series of challenges which must be overcome using basic materials, simple machines, tips from world famous inventors and the most important thing of all – your mind! If you were stranded on a desert island, how would you survive? You will need to build a shelter, find food and purify water, protect yourself and your teammates from the elements and find a way off the island. Journey to the future and examine the ultramodern inventions of the 23rd century. Then design the future - today! Create mini light sabers, mini-space stations, and electric flying contraptions. With a little bit of ingenuity, you’ll construct catapults and forts, build Ruberg contraptions that perform simple tasks, and experiment with humanoid robots. Take home projects include ping-pong ball launchers, mousetrap contraption cars, mystery sticks, tubular blow darts, and other wacky contraptions. While Thomas Edison said, “invention is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” this camp is 100% FUN!
 
July 24th - 28th
Reactions in Action
Shake up a flask of fun in the lab as a Junior Chemist in this camp packed solid with cool reactions. Explore bubbling potions, slimy polymers, color changing liquids, dry ice bubbles, and solids that disappear in an instant! Start out the week learning about laboratory equipment at your personal lab tech bench. Then, slide down the PH scale and spend a day finding out how different chemicals react when mixed together. Build and break molecules and grow crystals in a petri dish. Ooze into a gooey day of making crazy concoctions such as glow putty, glow spheres in a test tube, thermochromic mixtures, and guar gum brain goo! Round out this radical week by manipulating matter in all of its three states! Take home a full set of Mad Science lab gear that includes a graduated cylinder, a flask, test tubes, goggles, and a lab coat. Come take a walk on the wild side of chemistry!
