Daily Themes

December 22 - Adventures Down the Nile
As a preview to the 2015 summer exhibit, Lost Egypt, campers will explore everything Egyptian. From pyramids to pharaohs, hieroglyphics to mummies, campers will be mesmerized by this ancient journey down the Nile.

December 23 - Do You Want to Build a Snowman?
With the holidays only days away, campers will take a closer look at what makes our winter celebrations so special. A little whimsy and a lot of fun will allow campers to celebrate holiday traditions from around the world. With the fun in store with this camp, your children will be asking (or singing), "do you want to build a snowman?"

December 29 - Grossology 101
How do my organs actually work? Does blubber really help keep animals warmer? Do I really wash the germs completely from my hands? With hands-on activities and experiments, campers will explore what makes the world in and around them so remarkable, and so incredibly, but awesomely, gross.

December 30 - All About Me
His eyes are blue, her eyes are brown. She has dimples, he doesn't. Ever wonder why? In addition to exploring Identity: An Exhibition of You, campers will also perform hands-on experiments such as extracting DNA and analyzing fingerprints. This camp is sure to help you find out why you are so uniquely YOU!
