Exploration Camps for 7-11 year olds

Children in this age group are full of questions! They are excited to find answers and learn the skills they need for the future. Our camps focus on getting the kids hands-on experience using inquiry-based science to reinforce their knowledge while providing an environment that encourages and facilitates learning how to problem solve by themselves and with their peers.
