All while working with all art media! Campers will be introduced to different fields of science like chemistry, biology, and physics with experiments & art. Create with a variety of mixtures that go boom, fizz, pop and splat! See "Weekly Art Camp Schedule" below.

Learn the science in taking a good picture! Digital and analogue technologies merge in this camp to create original artwork. Learn about flipbooks, animation and uncover the unlimited possibilities through photography!


JUNE 20-24:  TranspARTation
Be introduced to the engineering design process! Problem solve, brainstorm, and find creative solutions to make your own transportation devices. If it rolls, flies, or floats we will investigate what makes it work and make our own device!


JUNE 27-JULY 1:  Looking Up 
Blast off in this exciting camp to gain knowledge about our solar system and beyond! Explore fascinating moons and find out how astronauts live on the International Space Station. Learn about the Earth's atmosphere, weather and space while conducting experiments and creating!


JULY 4-8:  Junkyard Warrior 
Explore North Dakota's natural resources while building windmills & investigating solar panels. Look at the innovations of today and apply them to create the designs of tomorrow as we explore ways to harness clean energy. Design tree houses that integrate simple machines that are good for our environment. Be a junkyard warrior while exploring the concept of recycling and develop original artworks!


JULY 11-15:  Anatomy Academy 
How strong are bones? What causes hiccups? Discover the answers to these questions and many more while exploring the human body inside and out.

Students will be introduced to the notions of force, compression, and tension prior to building truss bridges for a strength competition. Design, construct and test your engineering masterpieces. See who can design the tallest tower or build the longest bridge. Construct buildings and then demolish them with your very own wrecking ball!


AUGUST 1-5:  Primed to Paint! 
Learn about applying math to life! Explore geometry and angles as you bounce light, draw tessellations and make beautiful origami. Use mathematics in codes, create symmetrical masterpieces, make grid paintings, bar graph landscapes and real tetrahedral kites!


AUGUST 8-12:  Bugs & Botany 
Come learn how plants control water and design large-scale models of cells to understand the amazing inner workings of plants! Did you know that all the insects in the world weigh more than all other animals combined? Put on your exoskeleton, grab your net and enter into a bug's life!


AUGUST 15-19:  Einstein's Workshop
Move over, Einstein, the next brilliant discovery may come from one of Theo's inventor! Campers will use motors, gears, lights, fans and components found in broken machines to make their own innovations! Express ideas through writing and sketching out ideas while making, tinkering, building, and constructing.


AUGUST 22-24:  Land & Sea
