Explorers Camp Schedule

Explorers Camps

Explorers camps are for children entering 2nd–6th grade.

Thanks for thinking of ScienceWorks this summer!  All our camps are full.

 
Pre and Post Care
From 8 - 9am and 4 - 5pm ScienceWorks staff will supervise your child as they enjoy morning or afternoon activities. We suggest sending a snack with your child if they are attending Post Care.
 
Lunch Bunch Extended Care
From noon – 1 pm, ScienceWorks will be offering a supervised lunch hour!  Sign up for a morning session and pick your child up at 1 pm OR sign up for an afternoon session and drop your child off at noon.  For only $25 for the week, pack a lunch and water bottle and your child will be a part of Lunch Bunch.  Full-day campers receive free Lunch Bunch!
 

June 16 - 20
Survival Science (2nd – 5th grade)

Coyote Trails
Coyote Trails 
Join us in taking a look at the science of traditional living skills. How does friction work to make fire? How does dead air space keep us warm? What can you learn from your surroundings? We’ll take an in-depth look at the indoor hands-on exhibits and explore how the same scientific principles apply to the natural world outside.
 
June 23 – 27 
Tinker Thinkers (2nd – 6th grade)
ScienceWorks Staff
Think with your hands as you tinker with familiar materials and tools in unfamiliar ways. Take apart electronics to see what’s inside, light up LEDs with circuits on paper, build creatures out of wool, create translucent casts from plastic wrap and packing tape, and much more. If you’re an asker of questions and an inventor of curiosities, this is the camp for you!
 
July 7 – July 11 
The Buzz About Bees (2nd – 6th grade)
Sarah Red-Laird
Build a pollinator habitat, be a citizen scientist gathering data to share with other bee scientists, and observe a live beehive in this camp all about bees and other pollinator friends. The Buzz About Bees gives campers a chance to learn the basics of beekeeping, honey bee biology, pollination and food resources, and planting for pollinators.
 
July 14 – 18

July 21 – July 25
Found Sound (2nd – 6th grade)
Patty Aulik
Enjoy a week of rhythm and music through games and invention in this hands-on sound celebration! Transform tin cans, newspaper, cardboard tubes, coat hangers, and more recycled items into beautiful percussion instruments! Save a few items and bring them to class to create fun and colorful works of percussive art. Use a glue gun, scissors, small motors and more to turn those instruments into a moving musical sculpture. Its folksy art combined with the science of sound!
 
July 28 – August 1
Animation Station (2nd – 6th grade)
ScienceWorks Staff
Science and creativity come together as we explore the fantastic and imaginative world of stop animation through flip books, stop motion video, and other creative processes. Campers will create storyboards, design sets and draw/build characters to create a fabulous short film. Families are invited to our private film festival on Friday!
 
August 4 – 8 
Blast Off! (2nd – 6th grade)
Rob Harrington
Explore flight and propulsion using every day materials as you build a hovercraft model, experiment with paper airplane designs, and make parachutes. Your exploration of flight will reach new heights as we test different kinds of rockets. Hang on to your freeze-dried ice cream; this camp is out of this world!
 
August 11 – August 15 
Maker Mania (2nd – 6th grade)
ScienceWorks Staff
Join the Maker movement in this week-long celebration of learning by making. We’ll build Judo-Bots to battle, super strong bridges to hold up weights, rockets that return a raw egg safely to Earth, hydraulic machines to lift a watermelon, and much more! Each day we’ll take on a new design-and-build challenge so get ready to invent! Families are invited to our mini-maker fair on Friday to try out some of our creations.
 
August 18 – August 22 
Crazy Chemistry! (2nd – 6th grade)
Rob Harrington
If you like mixing it up, this is the camp for you! We will learn how to do a variety of chemistry experiments safely with items you could find at home. We will make our own pH indicators to test what materials in our kitchens are acids and bases, and use basic chemistry to make a variety of slimy and silly substances! We’ll even see how chemistry finds its way into some of our favorite stories.
 
 
August 25 – August 29
Dino Days (2nd – 6th grade)
Garth Mix of GMix Designs
Step back in time 68million years to the days when dinosaurs 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. Build flying Pterosaurs, T-Rex chompers, and even your own dinosaur helmet as you learn all about the bodies and habits of the long lost dinosaurs!
