Young Scientists

Each day, campers will explore different activities all centered around science, technology, engineering, and math! We will transform into young scientists and create our very own crystals, discover how electricity works and wire our own light up bugs, make machines out of found items, and learn the very basics of computer coding by making binary bracelets!

Down on the Farm

Learn about the wonderful things that agriculture provides for us in our everyday life. Experience some of the tasks that farmers undertake, and get hands on with crops, animals, and more. Campers will get to milk a robotic cow, shear a shaving cream sheep, work in the garden, build a
miniature house, and more.

Explorers

Westward Bound

The year is 1863, and our camp has decided to take up the call of the Homestead Act to move westward. Campers will learn about westward expansion and embark upon a covered wagon journey of their own. Explorers will learn trail skills to help them on their way like: campfire cooking, reading trail signs, first aid, and animal husbandry. This immersive camp will teach campers about history, outdoor skills, team building, and
more.

Wilderness 101

Campers will learn to follow their instincts and discover ways to survive in the wilderness. Each day of camp, we will explore nature and strengthen our survival skills. By learning how to make a fire, building shelters, using compasses, and making solar powered s’mores, campers will become more confident and comfortable in the wild and develop valuable skills!

Trekkers

Out of the Blocks

Campers will get to experience all the joys of Minecraft in the real world! Participants will meet the blacksmith, along with other Villagers, catch a fish, and hunt for mushrooms in the forest. The adventure continues as campers create their own blocks, make campfires, and plant crops such as carrots, beetroots, and wheat. Activities will also include hunting for coal, learning how wooden bowls are carved from trees and recreating paintings from the game.
