June 17 – June 21
A Whale of a Time

Garth Mix of GMix Designs
Dive into the science and art of marine mammals. Learn how whales evolved from small horse-like land mammals into 100 ton ocean-swimming giants. Explore the science of sonar, water pressure, and how some marine mammals can hold their breath for over an hour. Paint a LIFE-SIZED Gray Whale, design and illustrate whale and dolphin trading cards, and use your imagination to invent your own unique species of whale.
 
June 24 – June 28
Survival Science - Full day option only
Coyote Trails
Coyote Trails  
Join us in taking a look at the science of traditional living skills, like “how does friction work to make fire?”, “how does dead air space keep us warm?” and asking yourself “what happened here and what is it telling me about my surroundings?” We’ll be partnering with ScienceWorks to take an in-depth look at the indoor hands-on science exhibits and how the same principles apply to the natural world outside.
 
July 8 – July 12
EEW! Gross! Science!

Kristin Diehl
Have you ever wondered why saliva or snot is important for your body? How about how germs get passed from one person to another? Come with us on an experiment adventure through the creepy and gross areas of science. We will grow a germ garden, make skin, learn how smells travel, make a virus book, and other intriguing and icky projects.
 
July 15 – July 19
Wild Birds & Radical Raptors

Jeanine Moy 
Klamath Bird Observatory
Join KBO to explore the wild and wacky world of birds!  Did you know that Peregrine Falcons can fly up to 240 miles per hour? Or that the Arctic Tern has a 7,000 mile migration from pole to pole?  We will learn how to hoot like an owl, take apart owl pellets, and watch birds in action with a visit from Badger Run and a field trip to KBO’s bird banding station.  You don’t want to miss this camp; it’s a hoot!
 
July 22 – July 26
Sea Turtle Odyssey

Garth Mix from GMix Designs
Explore one of Earth’s most ancient creatures, the sea turtle. We’ll learn about the life cycle of sea turtles and explore the threats on their survival. From creating life-sized paintings of five species of sea turtle, to live video conferencing with sea turtle experts, there’s art and science shelled out every day during Sea Turtle Odyssey.
 
July 29 – August 2
Glass Act

Celia Canty
Explore some incredible musical inventions in this week of sweet sounding science. Campers will try out a variety of instruments and explore the sounds and vibrations of ScienceWorks. Our week together will conclude with a concert for families where campers perform their original glass music compositions.
 
August 5 – August 9 CANCELED DUE TO SMOKE

August 12 – August 16
Magic for Muggles

Chris Knutsen
The magic continues with this camper favorite! Transform yourself from an average Muggle to a scholar of witchcraft and wizardry at ScienceWarts! With your wand you will change solids into gases, make objects move in unpredictable ways, make invisible ink appear before your very eyes, and other magical feats too daring to mention. Use your new powers to help your house avoid He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and safely reach the end-of-week banquet, where you will receive your diploma.
 
August 19 – August 23
Avian Artist

Jeanine Moy 
Klamath Bird Observatory
Did you know that the blue in a birds' feather is not from a pigment but from a microscopic structure? And now scientists have used this knowledge to make lasers? Birds have inspired artists, scientists and engineers for centuries, and now it's your turn! Campers will meet birds of all colors, shapes, and behaviors to inspire paintings, sculpture, music and their own practical inventions. Campers will explore a different type of bird-inspired beauty, biology, or building each day.
 
August 26 – August 30
Dinosaur Days

Garth Mix of GMix Designs
Step back in time 65 million years to the days of the dinosaurs when reptiles ruled and mammals tried not to get eaten. Check out different species of dinosaurs and explore some of the clever adaptations they used to stay alive for so long. End the week by painting a LIFE-SIZED dinosaur in this camp where the past rules and fun never goes extinct!
