It’s the middle of September, have you finalized your fall break plans? If not, we’ve got some great options for your Kindergarten – 4th grade kiddos. Set for October 1 – 5, fall break camp is a week of hands-on, interactive exploration. This year’s theme is meteorology and we’re pretty confident that Mother Nature will provide us with plenty of real-life examples between now and then. Rather than registering for the full camp at once, fall break sign ups can be made for individual days. Here’s a breakdown of our lesson plans:
- Monday, A Day in the Clouds: Thunderbolts and lightning….very, very exciting! We’re exploring the water cycle and making pet clouds to take home.
- Tuesday, Be a Meteorologist: Channel your inner Lelan Statom or Jim Cantore as you learn about the instruments meteorologists use and become a TV meteorologist for the afternoon.
- Wednesday, Sun and Moon: Learn about the ways the sun and moon affect our daily weather despite being so far from Earth.
- Thursday, Wind: There’s no doubt a summer breeze makes us feel fine, but we’re talking about the tools humans use to harness the power of wind.
- Friday, Storms: We’re taking a look at the outspoken side of weather and learning about storm patterns that happen here at home and even taking a look at storms in space.
Registration for fall break camp is now open. Camp runs daily from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, but extended care is offered from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm for an additional $5 per day. The daily registration rate for non-members is $40 and members are $35. To reserve your spot today, click here.
