Special to the Enterprise
This summer was filled with friends and fun at Explorit’s Summer Science Camps. Our camps served students entering kindergarten on up to those entering 5th grade.
Campers learned all about different animals and their habitats during our “Something Wild Camp”. They solved the challenges of landing on and settling on Mars during “Mars Challenge”. Both “Junior Builders” and “Extreme Engineering” campers leaned about working together to solve building challenges with the engineering design process. With the help of our exhibit, campers in “Stones & Bones” learned about the different types of rocks found on Earth and how living things become a fossil. Rounding it all out was “Best of Explorit”, which highlighted the most popular activities of this summer, as well as the introduction of a few new ones.
Our summer camps are always fun for everyone but would not have been possible without our dedicated team of volunteers who take time out of their week to help us out each day of camp. A very special thank you to: Afreen, Anna, Bradley, Dylan, Haylee, Irene, Jack, Jenna, Jimmy, Luke, Maya, Melania, Mina, Mira, Neha, Nicole, Nikhil, Renata, Rohan, Susan, Ted, Timothy.
Thank you also to all of our campers, we could not have our camps without you! We hope your campers had a great time at Explorit this summer. We hope you see you again soon!
