Seekers Camp Schedule

 

Seekers Camps

Seekers camps are for children entering K–1st grade.
(or at least 5 years old with experience in group learning settings) and take place from 9am–12pm.

Thanks for thinking of ScienceWorks this summer!  All our camps are full.
 
 
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 Extended Care
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.

Little Foxes 
Coyote TrailsCoyote Trails
This camp is based entirely on the youngsters. General areas of play are: animal study – through body movement, tracking, performances, and exploring animal habitats; and the philosophy of playing with the Earth – taught through storytelling and games. Campers are taught entirely through experiential learning techniques, using the sights, tracks, sounds and smells of nature.


June 23 – June 27 
Shark Week
Tia McLean
Hammerhead, Great White, Mako, oh my! Learn about your favorite sharks this summer. Make a miniature shark, explore real shark jaws, and go on a shark scavenger hunt. End the week showing what you know in a shark show.

Cool off with us this summer by exploring the wonders of the chilly North Pole. Want to learn how to make an igloo? Or how to make snow? Whether competing in sled dog races or tasting homemade popsicles, you’re sure to have some frosty fun!

What’s lurking behind the lavender and resting under the rocks in our gardens? Come explore the mysteries of a garden and get to know all the living things we can find there, even a few microscopic friends!  We will observe and collect data in ScienceWorks’ Bear Garden and share what we learn with real scientists. Learn all the tricks and traits critters use to survive and invent ways to keep your very own garden growing strong!
 
 
August 4 – August 8
Color Creation Chaos
Emily Strong
How can we paint with magnets? What will color chromatography reveal about the true colors of a black marker? How do we create paper that is marbled like a rock that took millions of years to form? Every day we will combine colors and patterns from nature with the wacky laws of physical science for a collision that is sure to be bright and beautiful.  Leave this week with some really cool art and a T-shirt smock covered with colorful reminders of camp!
 
August 11 – August 15 
Hawaiian Vacation

Aloha!  All aboard the magic airplane to the island of Maui where we'll learn to hula dance, sing in Hawaiian and make leis.  We'll get to make a fish print, learn about sharks, erupt a volcano and play traditional Hawaiian games.  Families will be invited to our luau performance on Friday. Aloha!

LEGOs, Hot Wheels, and Launchers…Oh My!

Explore the science behind some of our all time favorite toys! How can we build sturdy towers and strong bridges with short bricks? What kind of ramp will help a car roll (or fly) the farthest or fastest? How can air pressure help us send a fluffy treat and a rocket into the air? Bring your curiosity and creativity to camp with you in this week of playful engineering.
