A Great Day at the Museums!

It was a fun day today at both the Museum of Science and the Children’s Museum!  There was so much to learn about, explore, and try!  

Both museums have lots of hands-on learning opportunities making it extra special for kids of all ages (even our counselors had a good time)!  

Tomorrow is our last swimming day because next week we will have our annual carnival on Friday!  It is hard to believe that the last week is almost here already.  Our theme next week will be International Travel.  We will have fun learning about places all over the world!

A Day of Creations and Experiments!

The creations that are made and the experiments that are tried make science week one of the most exciting at camp!  

Everyone was hard at work today designing containers to keep an egg safe in a long drop, making play dough, causing Ziploc bags to pop from a small reaction taking place inside, making tornadoes in a bottle, and so much more.  

They day finished with a cool experiment involving Diet Coke and Mentos.  The two create a reaction that results in a geyser erupting inside the soda bottle.  This was a fun demonstration to end the day!  

Tomorrow we get to continue exploring and learning as we head to the Children’s Museum and the Science Museum.  Please remember camp tshirts, sneakers, snack, water, and lunch.  We are scheduled to return to camp at 1pm.

Reminder to Bring in the Field Trip Permission Slip

Science Week Begins!

Our scientists were hard at work today!  We learned about the science behind snow, pudding, rocks, soap, and more!  Some campers went the engineering path and created structures using toothpicks and marshmallows or designing paper airplanes.

We had a human roller coaster and a very intense game of molecule tag!  We took what we learned from the bubble man last week and made some bubbles of our own!

Tomorrow the excitement continues with tornadoes, volcanoes, geysers, and more!
