Challengers Camp Schedule

Challengers Camps

Challengers camps are for children entering 4th–6th grade.
NEW THIS YEAR: Camps are full day! 
Come for the complete camp experience or opt for just half a day of camp.
 
 
Pre and Post Care
From 8 - 9am and 4 - 5pm ScienceWorks staff will supervise your child as they enjoy morning or afternoon activities. We suggest sending a snack with your child if they are attending Post Care.
 
Lunch Bunch 
From noon – 1 pm, ScienceWorks will be offering a supervised lunch hour!  Sign up for a morning session and pick your child up at 1 pm OR sign up for an afternoon session and drop your child off at noon.  For only $25 for the week, pack a lunch and water bottle and your child will be a part of Lunch Bunch.  Full-day campers receive free Lunch Bunch!

 


June 17- June 21
The GIZMO Project

Erik Kenner
If you love ScienceWorks exhibits, why not make your own? For the GIZMO Project, campers will design and build their own hands-on, interactive science GIZMOs. Explore the museum, search for ideas online, decide on a cool GIZMO, and build it. In the end, we’ll make a mini-version of ScienceWorks, our very own invention convention.
 
June 24 – June 28Coyote Trails
Survival Science - Full day option only
Coyote Trails  
Join us in taking a look at the science of traditional living skills, like “how does friction work to make fire?”, “how does dead air space keep us warm?” and asking yourself “what happened here and what is it telling me about my surroundings?” We’ll be partnering with ScienceWorks to take an in-depth look at the indoor hands-on science exhibits and how the same principles apply to the natural world outside.

 
July 8 – July 12
The Buzz About Bees

Sarah Red-Laird aka "Bee Girl"
Build a pollinator habitat, be a citizen scientist gathering data to share with other bee scientists, and observe a live beehive in this camp all about bees and other pollinator friends. The Buzz About Bees gives campers a chance to learn the basics of beekeeping, honey bee biology, pollination and food resources, and planting for pollinators. Printable flyer below.
 
July 15 – July 19
Super Sleuths: Crime Scene Investigations

Erik Kenner
If you like mysteries and solving crimes, then this is the camp for you! Every day will feature a crime to solve including a kitty-napping, the big forgery, a deadly picnic, the fingerprint mystery, and a drug caper. Super Sleuths will be a hands-on, lab-based summer session. Collect and examine evidence; then use your critical thinking skills to figure out whodunit and put away the bad guy. By the end of the week you’ll be creating your own crime scene mysteries for other campers to solve. No campers or kitties will be harmed in the making of this camp.
 
July 22 – July 26
Animation Station

Mary Ann Perry
Animation Station
Science and creativity come together as we explore the fantastic and imaginative world of animation through flip books and stop motion video, and we’ll learn tips and tricks from the masters old and new. Campers will create story boards, design sets and draw/build characters to create a fabulous short film.
 
July  29 – August 2
Habitat Detectives

Jeanine Moy  Klamath Bird Observatory
Do you like puzzles, riddles and mysteries? During this week-long mystery we will conduct a Secret Songbird Search, a Turkey Vulture Scavenger Hunt, and a Waterfowl Wander in order to find our final treasure on Friday. We will explore the diversity of habitats in the Ashland watershed. As we gather and record "evidence," we will learn about the scientific process, local bird species, and uncover clues to a fun celebratory surprise! This camp includes a series of walking field trips.

Extreme Engineering

Katie MacDiarmid
Discover the secrets of building machines and structures of all kinds in this hands-on camp! Learn the principles of design while competing in the bridge building challenge. Make your own balloon-powered cars, build a battery from a lemon, create a giant chain reaction machine, and more!
 
August 19 – August 23
3-2-1 Blast Off!

Rob Harrington
Explore flight and propulsion using every day materials as you build a hovercraft model, experiment with paper airplane designs, and make parachutes. Your exploration of flight will reach new heights as we test different kinds of rockets. Hang on to your freeze-dried ice cream; this camp is out of this world!
 
August 26 – August 30
ScienceWorks Spies

Mary Ann Perry
Learn the secrets of the world’s best spies. Write a secret code to communicate with your collaborators and create an alias to hide your true identity. We’ll be busy recovering Top Secret information and building elaborate alarm systems to keep out unwanted intruders. This is not elementary, my dear camper.
