What's Buggin' You?
Did you know that more than half of the creatures on the planet are bugs!? Creepy crawlies aren’t so scary—they have amazing tricks like camouflage and even help plants grow! In What’s Buggin’ You, we'll explore the amazingly diverse world of insects, creating our own bug collection and butterfly feeders, making beehive art, and more!
Explore the great mysteries of our ocean ecosystem! Through simple experiments and craft projects, we'll learn how waves work, why sharks are so awesome, why oceans are getting saltier, and what kinds of bizarre wildlife make the ocean their home. We’ll learn about deep-sea ecosystems, bioluminescence, and the everyday household products that come from the sea. We’ll also build an elaborate ocean mural and each day, creating new sea creatures to add, including sea snails, sea turtles, sharks, and jellyfish. We will be doing lots of arts and crafts. Campers, please come with your creative caps on ready to color, paint, and have fun! We will sing lots of songs about the big ocean blue, so please come ready and excited to work out those vocal chords! For the budding sea explorer, you won't want to miss this introduction to the wild world of ocean dynamics.
