Why, Mommy, Why? Little People, Big Questions
This summer camp is designed for pre-school children to explore and investigate the world around them. Hands-on activities will engage you and your child with a different science topic each week. Come with a sense of adventure and in clothes that can get a little dirty. We'll be doing activities both inside and outside.
Build your own summer camp. To accommodate busy summer schedules, a child and their caregiver can choose which of the Tuesday/Thursday dates to attend. If you are looking for some fun and educational activities to do with your child this summer, without the commitment of a week-long camp, this may be for you.
These sessions are for children ages 3-5 accompanied by an adult caregiver. Maximum of three kids per caregiver, please. Many of the activities that we will do will require adult assistance.
The camp will be held in and around 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.
All camps will be held 9-10 am.
