Practical Science Camps

Kids will go through our well crafted curriculum which encourages curiosity and empowers them while they take lead to be in-charge of their learning. Kids do a variety of experiments to deepen their understanding of the topic of the week.

Some of our revolving camp topics include: 

  • Air & Water
  • Earth Kids: Messy is Fun
  • Space Science
  • Health & Human Body
  • Fireworks & Light
  • Camp Dino
  • Battery Science

HEALTH SCIENCE: Kids learn to understand hygiene, nutrition, and even some anatomy and physiology. They’ll explore how to improve their health using their new found knowledge, hands-on experiments, and expert visits and special sessions with doctors!

PLANT SCIENCE: A hands on camp where kids learn about plants and go for a fun field trip to the nursery. We study photosynthesis, water and food transportation, plants and trees in different ecosystems, nourishment, biotechnology, observe cross sections and a whole lot more!

CAMP DINO: A fun camp for younger children to learn about their favorite dinosaurs, the ecosystem in which these mega animals thrived, understand how they were led to extinction, and watch videos which educate them to make guesses as to how we could have saved them.

CHEMISTRY IS FUN: Learn about acids, bases, litmus tests, make your own batteries, hot packs, cold packs, explore humidity tests…all while conducting fun experiments!

EARTH KIDS: A fun, messy camp where kids learn where food comes from, what helps it grow, how to avoid toxins, and check the pH of soil. They’ll learn a bit of chemistry, how to eat clean, and even play with self-made natural plastics.

Our camp topics change from season to season and often from week to week for maximum variety!
