CAMP COLLEGE Summer 2021
                 

Science camp

June 28-August 13
In-Person Schedule and Course Descriptions
Campers Ages 6-13

Camp College created a NEW Specialty Camp program. Courses are scheduled Monday-Friday and specifically paired together to create a full day experience, 8:30am-4:00pm. Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, Camp College is not offering ½ day Science Camp programming.  

When applying indicate the 2 course codes for the full day schedule on the registration form for each week.

Once camp begins, we are not able to transfer your camper into a different camp. Changes will only be approved if requested at least 4 weeks prior to the start of camp. A $25 processing fee will be applied for each schedule change request.
Space is Limited.


Week 1: June 28-July 2

 

JUNIOR PHYSICIANS’ ACADEMY
(AGES 9-13)

In this weeklong camp, children will have hands-on fun as they learn about scientific equipment that is near and dear to them- the human body! Campers will explore the science behind cells, organs, muscles, and bones as they navigate through the systems that make up our astonishing anatomy. Microslide viewers will aid in catching a glimpse of the tiny cellular machines that our bodies need to function. Interactive experiments will develop a further understanding of our organ systems, including our nervous, respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems. Children will construct model cells, make “Mad Mucus", build stethoscopes and lung models, and work together to assemble a model skeleton for an entertaining and educational week of camp! Is there a Doctor in the House?
