Welcome to Camp Curiosity Summer Camp for kids entering grades 4-8!

All camp sessions have been designed with your child's health and safety in mind. All campers and staff are required to wear facemasks and undergo a daily health screening. All materials and workspaces are sanitized before and after each use and classes use a dedicated space with access to hand washing and sanitizer stations. Social distancing measures are closely followed with small class sizes separated by age, and camp activities are tailored for each age group.

2022 Grade 4-8 Summer Camp Sessions

June 6, 2022 – June 10, 2022

Inspired by Animals
Explore the amazing ways insects and animals use math, engineering and science to navigate our shared world. Code a Sphero robot to mimic an insect's movements, engineer a maze for a hamster, and dissect a real squid! Learn how scientists borrow inspiration from nature while innovating, and do some biomimetic engineering of your own. Then, put your newfound knowledge to work solving a nature-inspired whodunnit: examine fur samples, identify droppings, and analyze animal calls to catch the culprit responsible for a mystery caper!
