Description

Have you ever looked up at the stars and wondered what might be out there? In this camp, you will take a ride on a spaceship and figure out what other worlds might be like. Campers will use explore and build on their knowledge of living and nonliving factors to create models of martian ecosystems. They will learn the basic principles of astronomy and examine how life was shaped on Earth and what it might look like elsewhere. Campers who enjoy building, imagining and designing will love this camp!
