Build It Discovery Camp
If your camper is curious about buildings and loves to try to figure things out, this is the perfect camp!

Sculpt & Zoom
Discover the world of 3D sculpture and motion in this fun STEAM camp. Campers explore the art and physics of kinetic sculptures, making pieces that soar, glide, roll, and zoom. Starting with materials like cardboard, clay, and wire, campers will bring creations to life with motors, wind, weight, and lots of imagination.
+ $160.00
Where's My Supersuit?
Campers explore the exciting stories and powers of superheroes like Batman, Spider-Man, and Captain Marvel.
