Students entering grades 5-7.

What's covered?

Until a few years ago, anyone who mentioned aliens as a reality would have been laughed at. But now, astrobiology (the study of life in space) has started to take off! If there is life out there, would we recognize it? Where should we look? What are the chances of finding intelligent life? To answer these questions, campers will peer through telescopes, build rockets, and learn how to analyze alien atmospheres for signs of life. Join this camp if you’re interested in answering the biggest question of all: are we alone in the universe?

Lunch and Snacks

  • Activity breaks will be taken each day to allow kids to eat their peanut free snacks that they brought from home.
