Birds, Blossoms and Bugs...OH MY!!
An exciting, active, and engaging summer science camp for elementary students who will enter grades 1-3 in the fall. This week-long adventure will focus on several aspects of nature. From taking part in the Mammal Olympics to becoming an "Aquatic Biologist" and exploring the microscopic marvels of Lake Wingra, participants will be learning and experiencing new wonders each day! Participants should bring a refillable water bottle. For their safety, it is important that each student wears comfortable clothing (which may get a bit dirty) and closed-toe shoes.
The camp will be held in the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood College Campus. The science center is a K-16 building that serves science students of all ages in the Edgewood community.
