Camp Descriptions

Design it! Build It!

Construct a tower and watch it topple!

Investigate the art and science behind constructing buildings and wonders of the modern world, then test your structures to see how much stress and strain they can handle. It’s controlled destruction!

Robots Jr.

Enter the revolutionary world of robots!

Design, build and program your own robot. This camp features problem-solving for students new to robotics. At the end of the week, put your robot to the test by participating in a series of fun engineering challenges.

Shoot for the Stars!

We have lift off!

Join our stellar adventure by exploring concepts of the moon and beyond. Investigate celestial objects in our universe and figure out what it might take to explore space. Launch into the world of an astronaut by designing, building and testing your own rocket and rover designs.

Your mission: become a spy kid! Code and decode secret messages, analyze evidence and solve problems then go on a top-secret scavenger hunt using all the tricks of the trade.

XPerience Gaming

Login to the world of gaming!

Learn about character and level design. Match your creativity with technology to play your own games and test them out on your friends. Explore the past, present and future of gaming.

Chemistry Catalyst

Engross yourself in experiments!

We’ll share the tricks of the trade so you can design and test your own experiments. Beginning with simple safety procedures, this week will build as you experiment with real chemistry!
