NASA – STEM Explorers (June 13-17)
Think and act like NASA innovators during this hands-on program inspired by the NASA OPTIMUS PRIME Research Challenge (NASA OPSPARC). Use creative and collaborative skills to design a mission patch, train like an astronaut, build a Mars rover and solve real-world engineering problems. How might space suit cooling tubes be used to solve a problem here on Earth?
NASA: Journey to Outer Space (June 13-17)
Take a voyage of discovery into the atmosphere and beyond as we explore planets, moons, and other space phenomena. Build your own Mad Science rocket and participate in a real NASA style rocket launch!  Create a kitchen comet and bring home lots of cool NASA take homes!  Mad Science is the ONLY organization licensed by NASA to use these activities for Summer Camps!
SAL: Funky Forensics (August 8-12)
Focus on the science of forensics in this hands-on look at crime scenes. Identify and collect evidence, from fingerprints to tracks to trash! Recreate the scene of a crime using clues and detailed observations. Use science to connect the dots and help sniff out the suspects in this hands-on investigation into the science of sleuthing!
Radical Reactions & Detective Science (August 8-12)
Become a skilled science sleuth while investigating the role of chemistry at the scene of a crime! Learn about chemical reactions as you grow crystals, use dental alginate to make fabulous finger molds, create sidewalk chalk from scratch, design chromatography bandanas to take home, and even make your very own ice cream!
Wild World Conservation (August 15-19)
Enter the world of Wildlife Conservation! Become inspired by the adventures of various Conservationists from around the world and experiment with different Crayola® projects and a wide variety of art techniques! Dive undersea with Jacques Cousteau to create a dancing jellyfish, storm the Serengeti with Guy Western and mold your own lion sculpture. You’ll get to know the world’s largest mammal with David Shepherd and create an elephant silhouette, adventure to the Arctic with Mardy Murie and create your own polar bear model, and countless other adventures! This camp is good for all ages as each child creates their own individual project.
Artist’s Passport (August 15-19)
With a passport in hand, campers will embark on an around-the-world cultural adventure. We will explore far-off places and learn about the people who live there, from the Americas to Polynesia, from the cosmopolitan to the countryside.
Children will  experiment with unique Crayola® products, while trying art techniques developed by local artists and artisans. Campers will create Chinese Rattle Drums, Polynesian Masks, Pakistani buses, Aboriginal Dot Art and more!  Children will bring their unique creations home and build a globally-inspired art gallery. This camp is good for all ages as each child creates their own individual project.
