Class Description

Students attend all six classes for thirty minutes each day of the camp.

Heebie-Jeebies and Creepy Crawlies:

In this hands-on session, students will have the opportunity to compare and contrast species from different classes of the animal kingdom. We will explore insects, mammals, amphibians and reptiles and their adaptations for the environment in which they live. Students will also utilize the scientific method to implement experiments involving the critters.

Food Science:

Students will experience the science behind the creation of foods. Through hands-on activities students will see what happens when ingredients are subjected to varying pH, chemical reactions, and controlled temperature.

Zoology: Animals Up Close and Personal:

Students will experience the animal kingdom in all sizes and forms. Students will learn about the range of animal life in the biosphere and will participate in hands-on activities to discover the inner workings of terrestrial and aquatic animals. Through hands-on activities such as specimen dissections and microscopic examinations, the course will emphasize an appreciation for animal biology, including anatomy and physiology, nutrition, and ecology.


This course will present the elements of art and principles of design to students. They will become acquainted with and apply their knowledge of these as they are exposed to the art and culture of Mexico. Some of the mediums they will explore are clay, yarn, oil pastels, chalk pastels, charcoal, metal, and watercolor.

Physical Education:

This course will acquaint students with various sports and recreation activities. Students will engage in problem solving activities in which group dynamics and team building are emphasized through discussions and participation in facilitated competition. Students will gain the ability to take initiative and explore personal values through various games and activities.

Survey of Science:

This class will be a whirlwind trip through all disciplines of science. Students will spend time in the following disciplines throughout the week: Biology, Chemistry, Zoology, Environmental, and Physics. Students will be involved in hands-on activities to engage their inner scientist.
