In this survey of the sciences, campers will participate in investigative projects exploring concepts in different fields of research every day. Learn how to look at the world through the eyes of a scientist, for one or two days or the whole week!

Tuesday — BioAdventures: Toxins in Nature
Plants and animals across the spectrum of life make, eat, and even steal various toxic substances to defend themselves and catch a meal. Explore the role that poison and venom play in the lives of these organisms and how humans harness them for good.

Wednesday — PaleoAdventures: Ice Age Mammals
In a world half-covered in a glacial sheet, saber-tooth cats and mammoths thrived. Investigate the clues these animals left behind to reimagine a day-in-the-life of the mammals who lived surrounded by the ice.

Thursday — AstroAdventures: Gas Giants
Gas giants have more in common with each other than just being big and gassy! Explore these still mysterious worlds to understand more about why they look the way they do and what is so special about their rings.

Friday — GeoAdventures: Carbon Revolution
Constantly changing and recycling, our Earth systems keep our planet livable. Explore the ways in which carbon, necessary for life, regulates itself through its millennia-long journey, and how we can help to keep it stable.
