Join us for 9 weeks of fun and adventure!  Look below for the theme of the week.

Theme: Fizz, bubble, pop chemistry

Field Trip: Como Zoo

Calling all Junior scientists explore the magic of the molecular world of chemistry in this exciting camp that is full of actions and reactions! Seemingly, magical topics such as polymers, rate of reaction, oxidation and chromatography are unmasked as we reveal the science through projects such as gooey slime, shiny crystals, disappearing objects and foamy explosions. Kids are mesmerized by the colorful fizzing formulas that make up the world around us, forcing them to ask the question: is it magic, or is it science?
Theme: Zombie survival camp

Field Trip: Base Camp

The apocalypse is starting. Zombie infections are spreading. Learn about the epidemiology of diseases and infections and mind controlling parasites. Understand how zombies think and move by learning about the brain. Calculate how fast the disease is spreading. Understand our own anatomy and physiology to keep our arms and appendages from rotting and falling off. Create survival tools from found objects, develop strategies to hide and outwit the mobs of zombies outside. Only the fastest thinkers survive.
Theme: Plants and Potions

Field Trip: Aboretum

Explore the mysterious world of herbs with this magical, herbal summer camp. Make your own healing potions, secret remedies, magical salves, enchanted syrups and special healing remedies. Recipes, projects, delightful stories, activities, grow your own garden, create healing herbal preparations!
Theme: Oceanology

Field Trip:Big River Journey

Explore the crystal blue oceans studying the structure of our oceans, marine life, and environmental issues. Learn about ocean zones, map making, plate tectonics, knot tying and much more.
Theme:Young Veterinarian

Field Trip: Wildlife Science Center

Join us for an exciting week of exploring Veterinary Medicine. Campers be involved with several hands-on experiments! Campers will also get hands-on experience on animal dissection, stitch a wound, build a lung model, first aid techniques, splinting, use a syringe, and much more.
Theme:CSI

Field Trip: Science Museum

Come and explore the world of science as a CSI detective. As a Curious Science Investigator you will explore and investigate mysteries, which involve hands on experiments. Step into CCE’s Science Lab and brush up on your forensic skills by solving problems through observations, investigations, experimentations, and drawing conclusions to many science inquiries.
Theme: Renaissance Science

Field Trip: Valley Fair

Learn key science concepts by following the multidisciplinary approach of the Renaissance period. Students will be experimenting, creating projects, and exploring how art intersects with science and nature just like the renaissance scientist Leonardo DaVinci, Sir Isaac Newton and Galileo Galilei.
Theme: Rockets and Space - 3-2-1 Blast Off!

Field Trip: Bell Museum

This action-packed week focuses on rockets and space. Learn about model rocket design, building, aerodynamics, propulsion, launching, safety, recovery, and repair. Take part in daily launches. Take home your own rockets and an abundance of model rocket knowledge. Explore our solar system through hands-on experiments and engineering challenges.
Theme: Young Builders

Field Trip: Bakken Museum

Structures, circuits, and things that go. Build them all yourself. Let’s go! Join us on an adventure to explore the world of engineering. Create models, build structures, and even make a marble maze using everyday materials.
