4 Weeks — 4 Camps — 4 Themes

(Sorry, registration by the day is not possible.)

Week 1: Sky High

FULL: July 8–12

Do you want to become an astronaut? Before NASA, get your flight training here!

Our Mad Scientists will prepare your children for space travel with rockets, teaching them all they need to know before their first launch. They’ll travel through time looking at the earliest flying machines right up to modern space shuttles. They’ll also gain hands-on experience learning principles of gravity, flight, and aero-dynamics, and will use their new skills to develop flying machines of their own! This week will fly by with all the fun!

Week 2: Born to Perform

Full: July 15–19


drama iconNo such thing as no talent! We discover everyone’s natural acting talent and abilities and by the end of the week, stars are born!

Our acting/drama program lead by the wonderful people at Great Big Theatre Company provides an enriching, supportive, and cooperative environment for campers to not only build their performance skills, but also foster inclusiveness, respect, responsibility, and creativity. We can’t wait to draw back the curtain and see what hidden talents develop!

Week 3: Lego Brixology

Full: July 22–26


LEGO… Need we say more?

This week sets the foundations for our next generations of makers! At our Lego Brixology week, campers will use Lego Technic systems to build things that walk, swing, crawl, spin, and move on their own in any way they want to design their creations. Your child will learn about engineering and will team up for construction projects using those iconic bricks we all know and love! Imagination knows no limit here at CAMP ACTIVATE so bring your Lego ideas and let our Mad Scientists help your child create new innovations for our ever-changing world.

Week 4: Eureka Week!

Space Available: July 29–Aug 2


gear iconIt was said by the great inventor, Thomas Edison, that “Inventions are 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration” but this week will be 100% FUN!

Camp attendees will overcome a series of challenges using basic materials, simple machines, and tips from famous inventors of the past. Most importantly, they will use their strongest tool of all—their mind! If your child likes to take things apart to see how they work, or tinker with different things around the house to create something new, this camp is for them. The ideas they’ll come up with after attending this Mad Science camp will blow your mind!
