There will be something for every scientist-in-the-making!
MODS Space Adventures
June 20-24 (Five-Day Camp)
Campers will discover the mysteries of deep space, create a star projector and explore how challenging it is to control a rover that is thousands of miles away. Then, campers will maneuver a rover through a Martian obstacle course and participate in Mission: Egg Drop!
Dinos in Motion!
June 27-July 1(Five-Day Camp)
STEAM meets Dinosaurs! Let’s dig into the world of dinosaurs through science and art. Campers will test out their imaginations by creating a tech dinosaur and receive a chance to explore our traveling exhibit, Dinosaurs in Motion!
Zombie Survival Training!
July 4-8 (Five-Day Camp)
Campers will zombie walk into Camp Discovery for survival training to learn about zombie myths, how to prevent the spread of pesky germs that make us sick, investigate how scabs and bruises are our body’s way of healing and participate in zombie agility courses! Then of course, campers will learn all about BRAINS!
Up, Up, and Away!
July 11-15 (Five-Day Camp)
It’s time to soar through the science of flight! Campers will engineer their own flight and take aim for fun while learning about gravity and energy! Future pilots will fly on their imagination while exploring various replica cockpit simulators of the Lockheed-Martin F-35 Joint Strike fighter, the Edge 540, and a Vought F4U Corsair, and then design and test personal flight designs. Campers will ride through the sky within our 7D capsule theater in Inspiration Take Flight!
