June 14-16 Maker Camp Session 1
Forces and circuits will be the focus for Maker Camp 1. We will challenge your creativity using forces as you engineer some cool catapults and launchers to reach new heights and distances your projectiles will go! Circuit inventions will include messing around with Banana keyboards and flashing pictures as the starting point for investigations with circuits!
June 28-30 3-2-1 Blast Off
Rockets, blasters, and airplanes are just the start of this soaring experience! Come join the fun as we create objects that fly, soar, and float as if lighter than air.
July 5-7 Adventures with Ocean Creatures and Critters
Our ocean is filled with so many amazing animals. We’ve chosen a few of our favorites to explore, investigate, and make art with. We’ll examine shark skin, make a shark tooth necklace, dissect a squid, create Gyotaku prints (fish printing), investigate what lives in an oyster reef, and more- much more.
July 12-14 Experiments and Artistic Play from Stories Kids Love!
This camp is for story lovers, scientists, and artists alike. We’ll enjoy a story then look at the science and art within. We’ll create collages (just like Eric Carle), sun prints, compare and contrast, learn about life cycles, make stomp rockets, and a whole lot more. You won’t want to miss this!

Stitching makes really cool summertime fashions and crafts to wear, give, and keep. Learn to operate a sewing machine and sew some really handy stiches for yourself.
