If you enjoy hands-on activities that will allow you to put your creativity into action, as well as learning new coding platforms that will inspire you to build your own stories, games and animations, you can’t miss this week of STEAM camp. Every morning is a new adventure! The JCC is proud to partner with Yavneh Day School to bring you this popular camp for yet another year. Now being offered in two different weeks!

*Please note: Tinkering + Coding campers will participate in STEAM activities in the morning, and then filter into traditional day camp in the afternoon.

 

Wacky Robots and Widgets

Entering Grades 3-6
Week 3: 6/25-6/29

Whether your child loves to build things or destroy them, this week of camp includes lots of both! Junior Mad Science engineers design and build structures using simple tools and their imaginations. Then the machine madness starts…children discover how different machines, both simple and complex, are used in our daily lives. Kids design simple machines using pulleys, wedges, screws and levers and have fun learning how catapults work. You’ll use the skills you’ve learned to build a Mad Science robot that you can keep, all while learning the science of robotics.

Campers will get to participate each day in Camp Shalom’s morning song circle, and go swimming every afternoon.

 

Jet Cadets

Entering Grades 1-6
Week 6: 7/16-7/20

Explore the basic principles of flight, ride a hovercraft, build airplanes, and construct balloon copters! This hands-on Mad Science program teaches you all about aerodynamics and the world above us. Discover the mysteries of the galaxy, learn about celestial navigation, and take home a rocket that you build yourself!

Campers will get to participate each day in Camp Shalom’s morning song circle, and go swimming every afternoon.

 

Spy Academy

Entering Grades 1-6
Week 7: 7/23-7/27

Look out 007–the Mad Science Spy Academy is here! From decoding messages to metal detectors and night vision, campers have the opportunity to check out spy tech equipment and take home lots of gadgets like a UV Fingerprint Finder! Step into the shoes of a detective as you uncover the science involved in evidence gathering and analysis! Figure out the science of forensics and reveal who is behind those crazy capers! Become a super spy and learn clever ways of performing tasks as we take a hands-on view of the science that spies use
