Is your camper curious about how clouds form, why each snow flake is unique, and what happens inside a tornado? This session is perfect for the budding meteorologist! We’ll be singing in the rain as we investigate the wacky and wonderful world of weather.

STEM II & III

CODING: LEGO Design

In this camp from one of the leaders in the industry for STEM, LEGO. Kids learn real programming as they design and code their own from start to finish. Kids will learn the basics of one of the most popular coding languages in the world as they modify real code to build their own blocks, items and more. During camp, kids will master introductory programming concepts including object-oriented programming, methods and parameters, instantiation of new objects, and more.

CODING: App Design

In this camp from ROKENBOK, kids learn basic mobile app development skills as they design and program their own robot. Kids will learn basic programming concepts, including if-then statements, variables, and complex logic as they create their mobile game from scratch. During camp, kids will complete the process of designing a mobile game from start to finish, including choosing characters, level design, and programming the app’s functionality.

ROKENBOK and LEGO* — STEM Challenge I

Power on your engineering skills with Kid Explorer Camp and tens of thousands of ROKENBOK or LEGO*®!

ROKENBOK and LEGO* — Jedi Engineering

The Force Awakens in this advanced engineering course for young Jedi! Discover key engineering concepts such as gear trains, worm drives, pneumatics, and eccentric motion. Build LEGO* X-Wings, AT-AT walkers, Pod Racers, Star Destroyers, Cloud Cities, Settlements, Fortresses, and other complex machines and structures from a galaxy far, far away.

F(9) U(92) N(7) LAB

“Get these people out of here, they’re contaminating the crime scene!” Campers assume the role of forensic scientists at camp this week as they unravel the clues to the crime. Practicing fingerprint evaluation, fiber matching, and handwriting analysis, campers will use authentic forensic skills to crack the case. It’s not elementary, Watson, it’s camp!

Forensic Fanatics!

Ready for some radical reactions? The Kid Explorer Camp Labs are back up and running. Grab your lab coat and safety goggles because we’re mixing all sorts of weird substances this week at Kid Explorer Camp. We’ll try not to blow anything up — well, we’ll try not to blow anything up too much.

MAKER CAMP-High Tech Tinkering

Featuring real parts, real science, and real engineering, our Advanced Robotics camp is second to none. After learning how to make safe electrical connections and get their wheels spinning, campers will hone their problem-solving skills as they tackle open-ended challenges employing scientific and engineering concepts learned throughout the week. At the end of each session, campers will bring home their own fully functioning Electric Motors Catalyst from Tinkering Labs.

Ready, Set, Whoa!

We’re going fast this week, real fast. Flying, sailing, and blasting off — the only things holding us back are the laws of physics. We’ll see how far we can bend those as campers push the limits on roller coasters, rockets, and wave runners. Campers will utilize math, engineering, and scientific concepts in their pursuit of all things speed. *“LEGO,” “Frozen” and “Moana” are trademarks of their respective owners.
