2022 Summer Camp Themes

Each camp week will be organized around a central theme. Each day one or two activities will focus on that week's theme.  Over the course of a given week, campers can expect to experience activities from Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science.  Many of the weeks will also include activities from Geography and Kinesiology. 3D Printing is also worked into many of our camps!
