Are you in search of a summer camp that offers more than just fun for your kids?
Camp Cognition is here to ignite curiosity, foster out-of-the-box thinking, and provide hands-on learning experiences. With five captivating themes, this summer program is for rising second through eighth graders.
The first week of camp, June 19-22, is “Incognito at Cognition.” Campers will develop detective skills by learning how to crack codes, examine evidence, and complete some fun Mission Impossible-style challenges.
“This is a great camp for any child who loves asking questions and solving puzzles,” said Jessica White, Cognition coordinator.
Week two is “Science of Art” week June 26-29. Campers will learn about how science and art tie together, and how to use science to create art. Participants will complete colorful experiments that result in art pieces the campers will get to bring home each day. This is the perfect camp for any child who loves art, science, or both.
The third camp, themed “STEAM Around the World,” is from July 10-13. Campers will “travel” to a different country each day they walk through Cognition’s doors, learning about that country’s architecture, art, and history, then complete engineering challenges, art projects, and more to dive into the setting. Kids who love engineering, art, and travel should love this camp.
In week four, “Travel Through Time!” July 17-20, as campers will travel through a time machine each day to points in history. They could end up in the Jurassic period learning about dinosaurs or in the 1700s discovering electricity. Each day will be new and full of experiments, engineering, and STEAM challenges. This camp is great for kids with a great imagination who love STEAM.
The last week of camp is July 31-Aug. 3 and is themed “Natural Disasters.” Participants will learn about many kinds of natural disasters that occur all over the world. They will talk about famous disasters in history while doing experiments that replicate them, or STEAM challenges where they try to survive them. This camp is great for any kids with an interest in weather, environment, or natural disasters.
Morning Camp is from 9 a.m.-noon for rising second-fourth graders; and Afternoon Camp is from 1-4 p.m. for rising fifth-eighth graders. The fee is $100 per camper per week.
