Lost Arts and Skills Camp (July 10 - July 14)

Campers discover the tasks and activities that children did every day in the 1800's. Before shopping malls and fast food, children learned to make their own clothes and toys, prepare snacks from fresh ingredients, work with wood, fish and may other "lost arts." Extended care will be available before and after the camp day. Lost Arts and Skills Camp is for children 7 to 10 years old.

Gears, Engineers, and Science Frontiers Camp (July 31 - August 4)

Make a smoothie using a bicycle. Design a structure to withstand a hurricane or earthquake. Discover the secrets behind fireworks. Win a game of tug-of-war against the rest of the camp. Campers take on daily engineering challenges, while conducting experiments to uncover the mysteries of polymer science. They will see how technology has changed over time from water power to solar power. A highlight of the week is a field trip to the Franklin Institute. Gears, Engineers, and Science Frontiers Camp is for children 10 to 12 years old.
