Summer DAY Camp: 5 Weeks of Scientific Fun in the Sun!

Taltree summer camp program creates a safe and fun environment for children to expand their horizons and develop new interests in nature and science. Camp is five weeks, each week offering new and different activities based on science theme. Campers can register for a single week or all five weeks based on their interests. Camp is open to second through fifth graders.

Camp hours are 8:45 to 3:30 pm. Pre- and post- childcare available.

Week 4 – CSI: Taltree (July 7-11): Campers will become the next generation of Camp Science Investigation experts! Campers will be introduced to the Scientific Method where they will investigate and test their own hypotheses. They will investigate maggots, protazoa, germs and larvae. On a Dead Things hike, they will explore decaying plant matter and identify various fungi species. Campers will visit the Challenger Learning Center to meet everyday science investigators and meet local law enforcement to learn about their jobs. To be a real CSI camper, they will dissect owl pellets to see what they had for lunch. Campers will investigate and present their findings about detritivores, a fungi-bacteria like organism that makes soil.
