2015 Camp Themes

Each camp week will be organized around a central theme. Each day one or two activities will focus on that week's theme.  Over the course of a given week, campers can expect to experience activites from Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Computer Science.  Many of the weeks will also include activities from Geography and Kinesiology.
