Offering The Best Childhood Preparation for Social and Academic Success.

Science

Science lessons help children learn to think logically and solve problems methodically. We have many different camps that include the scientific method and scientific topics. Even everyday tasks, such as cooking, may involve science.

Our Science camps include:


In Animal Adventures, your child will go on a safari to learn all about the beautiful and sometimes strange animals in the world. We’ll sample animal-themed crafts, books and games in the classroom and then venture outside to learn about the critters that dwell in our own backyard.

Technology is everywhere; computers, tablets and smartphones have become an essential part of our everyday lives. But how do they work? In Code Academy, we’ll tackle this question and more as your child explores the various uses of technology. Your child will also have the opportunity to try writing some computer code, which is a valuable skill in the 21st century.

Simple machines help us carry out many basic tasks. If you need to lift something heavy, you might use a pulley. If you want to keep a door open, you might put a wedge between the bottom of the door and the ground. Your child will discover how simple machines can make life easier in Engi-nuity!

If you cut Earth in half, you would see several layers. The movement of the layers of the Earth formed the mountains and volcanoes, which are part of the top layer, called the crust. And rocks? Rocks are pieces of the crust that have broken off. In Epic Explorers, your child will explore the many layers of the Earth.

In GOOOAAALL!!!, your child will take to the field to play some familiar sports and learn some new ones. We’ll also teach the rules of the games and the importance of good sportsmanship. If we play team sports, your child might create a jersey, pick a team name and even choose a team mascot.

It’s Your Move encourages children to use their wits to outplay their opponents no matter what game they’re playing. We will create and play board games and card games, and then we will head outside to play some outdoor games. We will also recreate a game show or two. Win, lose or draw, the point of playing games is to have fun!

 

Explore the science of food in Kitchen Chemists! Your child will mix together different ingredients and cook them to make something delicious. We will also explore what kinds of foods the children like, what they would like to learn to make and how to eat healthily. Let’s not forget about the most fun part: you child will enjoy some yummy treats!

 

Out of This World takes your child on an adventure to find out what the constellations look like, how astronauts traveled from the Earth to the moon and so much more. We might even build a space shuttle and take an imaginary trip to Mars.

 

The world is full of different and interesting cultures. In Passport Around the World, your child will take an imaginary trip around the world by exploring different customs, food, languages and more. Your child can also help us create the itinerary!

 

In Road Trip USA, we’ll crisscross the United States of America from the comfort of the classroom as we discover the cultures, foods, people and landmarks that make this country unique. If your child wants to learn about a particular place, tell us! Everyone can help us plan the trip.

 

Robots are everywhere these days. They help us assemble cars, perform surgery and explore other planets. In Rockin’ Robots, your child will investigate the world of robotics. Your child will also design and build robots that carry out simple tasks.

 

We need your child’s help to complete a top-secret assignment, but we cannot reveal the specific details as they are highly confidential and can only be delivered in person. What we can tell you is that your child will need to join our Secret Agent camp to complete a fun training course, gather clues, use different disguises to go undercover and perform other assignments.

 

Nature is full of interesting things. Did you know there are so many different types of flowering plants that it would be impossible to remember them all? And new flowers are still being discovered! In The Great Outdoors, your child will explore why trees have rings, the effect of sunshine on plants, weather patterns and so much more.

 

Under the Big Top lets your child behind the scenes to find out how to put on an amazing circus! Your child will learn how trapeze artists swing through the air, how tightrope walkers balance, how jugglers can keep so many objects in the air and more.
