2015 THEMES

ODD WEEKS:  EXTREME ENVIRONMENTS
Remarkable animals have adapted to live in the most extreme of environments – the dark, deep depths of oceans and caves, seemingly barren deserts and vast ice fields.  We’ll travel to these unfamiliar worlds and take a close look at the animals that live there, how they survive and the clever ways scientists study the world’s most extreme environments. 

EVEN WEEKS:  FEEDING FRENZY
It’s dinnertime! With many different kinds of food comes many different kinds of adaptations for eating.  Using beaks, toes, teeth, paws, big mouths and little mouths, the different ways that animals chow down at mealtimes is as fascinating as the animals themselves. Elbows off the table, dude.

Frequently Asked Questions


“I've never seen [my daughter] so enthused about any school or camp experience before…  Schools could take a lesson or two from your curricula -- you managed to integrate content with experience, problem solving, and cooperative group work.  You even got kids taking notes -- and looking back at them. And loving every minute of it…. My daughter was in heaven for a week.  Thank you and thank you again.”
