Week 1: Over the Moon: Astronomy
Astronomy camp is all about discovering the Eureka moment! Students will explore “the heavens” and experience the excitement of scientific inquiry.

Week 2: Ecosystems
The plants and animals that are found in a particular location are referred to as an ecosystem. These plants and animals depend on each other to survive. In a delicate balance, these lifeforms help to sustain one another in regular patterns. Join us as we explore what happens when a new plant or animal is introduced into an ecosystem where it did not exist before.
