Special to the Enterprise

 

Explorit Science Center is thrilled to announce we will once again be partnering with Spring Lake Elementary school to bring our ever-popular Summer Science Camps to Woodland! All your favorite hands-on camp experiences will be available in both Davis and Woodland locations this summer.

 

Summer Science Camps return in 2019 with a full slate of all-new hands-on science experiences. Apply all your knowledge of chemistry, physics, engineering and more to tackling real-world problems in Solve It! Real World Challenges.

 

Or explore local flora and fauna in Animal Detectives and learn how to protect our planet in Earth Enforcers-Environmental Stewardship. Plus, dig deep and prepare to get your hands dirty in Fossil Finders.

 

These camps will be available at Spring Lake Elementary (2209 Miekle Ave. in Woodland) from June 17 to July 19, and at Explorit (3141 5th St. in Davis) from July 22 to August 16. Each half-day camp runs from 8:45 a.m. to noon, and costs $100 for Explorit members, $125 for non-members.

 

New this year is an astronomy camp for teens offered exclusively at Explorit. Students ages 12-16 can turn their gaze toward the heavens in The Stars and Our Night Sky, a special evening astronomy experience. This camp meets July 8-12, 5:00-8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6:00-10:00 p.m. on Friday.

 

A full schedule and all the details is available at www.explorit.org. Registration opens online on March 12. Camp sizes are limited, so register early for the best selection. We hope to see you this summer!
