This week at camp will be devoted to the study of streams. Through a series of exciting hands-on science lessons we will explore stream ecosystems and the creatures and plants that make streams so fascinating. Each day, campers will make and take home two science projects and on Wednesday or Thursday, we'll take a field trip by bus to explore a local stream. In addition to studying stream life, we'll make fun art projects, play outdoors, create Lego structures, and watch science movies.

Featured Projects:

  • Create and take home your own mini-zoo with a tiny pond snail, a planaria, algae and bizarre looking protozoans (we'll explore the tiniest creatures under a microscope).
  • Design an electric matching game to learn about stream nymphs and their adult insect forms.
  • Build a nature camera and develop solar prints of stream plants.
  • Make stream identification cards and become a naturalist.
  • Take a field trip on a bus to investigate a real stream.
  • Fish out fascinating stream creatures for a closer look.
  • Go on a hike to discover the plants and animals living near streams.
  • Design a stream food chain mobile to learn who eats what.
  • Build a better boat to float down a stream.
  • Make a crawdad (crayfish) fishing pole.
  • Construct a model caddisfly cave and learn how these fascinating creatures use stones as camouflage.
