Science Discovery Lab Camp 2018

For Girls and Boys Entering Grades 2-9

Session 1: July 2 - July 13 (Grades 2-5 Only)
Session 3: July 30 - Aug 10

Are you ready to become a Mad Scientist? The Science Discovery Lab specialty is just the place for you! The Science Discovery Lab program is for the camper who seeks scientific adventure beyond the typical school curriculum. A certified teacher leads the campers in hands-on, guided activities that will allow them to see, touch, hear, smell and taste how fun science can truly be. The program covers various areas of science, such as biology, chemistry, physics, rocketry, nutrition and aerospace. During the two-week session, campers transform into young scientists as they engage in myriad experiments, such as dissections ranging from frogs to fetal pigs to sharks. All campers will design, construct and launch their own rocket on our famous Launch Day, and counselors will also teach about chemical bonds. With tie-dye, goo and polymer worms to take home, many of our activities will enhance campers’ understanding of themselves and the world around them. Through the use of the most current technology at Hofstra’s state-of-the-art science laboratories, participants will undergo a journey that covers much of the scientific spectrum with souvenirs to capture these memories from the very experiments themselves! This specialty is designed to hold the interest of enthusiastic “scientists” as well as campers who wish to test their potential in these exploratory subjects. Each year, different course material – with progressively more challenging investigation skills – is introduced.  The Science Discovery Lab specialty not only challenges and nurtures the curious camper, but it also provides an opportunity to meet with children of similar interests and create friendships that will last a lifetime.  

Note: There is a $50 surcharge per session for additional equipment and staff requirements.

Half the day consists of science. For the other half of the day, your child is placed in a recreation group of 8-10 campers in the same grade and gender where all campers enjoy lunch, instructional swim and recreational sports.
