Summer Camp Weeks

 Each week of summer camp is themed to give your child a diverse and engaging experience. Each week children will engage in fun, age appropriate, play and learning. Check out each expedition below for more details. 

Roarrr! It’s dinosaurs! 

Come travel back in time to the Mesozoci Era. Our expedition begins by traveling to the Jurassic period and exploring all life forms and terrains. 

During this week children will get an opportunity to create their own dinosaurs, defend their camp against predators, research dinosaur genetics, make dinosaur snacks, create exploding volcanoes, and excavate dinosaur bones. The week will wrap up with some dinosaur tag and water play.

If your child loves dinosaurs, this is the week for them! It is sure to be a roaring good time. 

Insects

 The second expedition will take your child into the world of creepy crawly insects. 

 Bugs are everywhere! Campers will explore jungles, streams, and mountains to dive deep into the world of insects. Campers will learn the importance of bugs in our world and how many of them perform unique jobs. 

 Campers can expect lots of hands on, creative learning. 

This week is sure to be filled with lots of messy play, STEM, and creativity.

Farm Animals

 Click Clack MOO! This week campers will explore jobs and animals on the farm. Campers will be encouraged to build their own working farm models, practice farm jobs, and spend some time rolling in the mud with the pigs.

This week is sure to be great time and will be wrapped up with a possible trip to a local farm and a romping hoedown dance.  

South American Animals

   Campers will travel to South America, where they will explore the unique animals that live there. Touring through the rainforests, canyons, and coastal regions will bring our campers to explore some of the world’s most fascinating and extreme creatures. 

African Animals

 Come join us for a week filled with adventure on the Serengeti.

 Campers will have loads of fun taking a safari tour through the plains of Africa. Here campers will be able to study both big and small animals that thrive in these harsh conditions. Campers will also explore the ecosystem here and pretend to be an animal for the day. 

Tundra Animals

 Come join us for a fun filled few days in the Arctic. 

  Campers will hop aboard the SS Iceberg to go on a journey to the Artic. There they will explore the harsh cold environment and the animals that live there. 

 Children will have fun experimenting with materials to recreate whale blubber, survive an Arctic storm, and try to be a penguin for a day. 

 This week will be filled with lots of frozen fun. 

This week the Environmental Studies Center will come to ACM to do the show Amazing Reptiles. Live animals and their caretakers will be present.

Australian Animals

  Campers will have fun traveling around Australia and looking for some of the world’s most dangerous and unique animals. 

 Campers will take time to explore the diversity of animal life and become animal wildlife rangers to help protect some endangered wildlife. 

   

Oceanic Animals 

 Campers will have a fun filled week under the sea. Campers will have the opportunity to study ocean life and biomes. 

 During this week campers can expect to have lots of hands-on learning, as they explore the depths of the ocean and some of the weirdest animals in the sea.
