A Typical Day at Camp

Camp Hands-on
Hands-on Activities

Design a catapult, experiment with yeast, and so much more! This camp will feature some of the favorite activities from our virtual Summer Camp, as well as brand new activities too!

Dive into the day starting at 9:30 am with an interactive experiment with your fellow campers each morning, followed with a “solo challenge” extension, for campers to try on their own time with materials from their Science Activity Box (such as building a boat, or observing growing yeast!). Then, come back online in smaller groups for the afternoon for some team building and another interactive activity!
