Camp Activities

Drop off your camper with certified local educators who start each day with games that spark creativity.

Robotic Aquatics: Campers create a habitat for a robotic fish - complete with a symbiotic friend - and then take their fish home in its mini tank!

Spacecation: Inspired by real space exploration, campers construct Spacepacks and Astro-Arm devices, mine asteroids and observe ice volcanoes!

Half the campers head outside to play action-packed games while the others eat lunch - and then they switch.

NIHF'S The Attic: Combining science and art to build their own robotic artists, campers make spin art and learn that everyone can be creative!

Marble Arcade:  Campers get their game on as they experiment with the fun of physics and engineering to build their own mega marble arcades!

The day wraps up as campers wind down with problem-solving games.
