2017's camp theme days include:

Genetics: 

Have you ever wondered what makes you who you are? Campers will find the answer through fun and interactive activities. Students will make a model of DNA, and even get to see real DNA from a banana!  Students will learn about the variations in DNA that make them unique, and how those variations can be used to design monsters!

Mining: 

Discover the ins and outs of mining! Participate in a Toaster Mining Marathon, design a mine shaft rescue, and see how profitable you can you make your chocolate chip cookie. These and many more exciting challenges coming your way on mining day!

Space Discovery:

Explore the many wonders of space. What would it feel like to be an astronaut? How are we learning more about Mars? How do we know what is going on in space from way down on Earth? Answer these questions plus create telescopes, sundials, and launch bottle rockets!

Medical Science: 

Be a doctor for the day! Campers will build working models of their lungs and arms to demonstrate just a couple of the many processes that take place in the human body. They will also get to make a cast, experiment with their reflexes, make stethoscopes, and discover some of the science surrounding medicine.

Sustainable Energy:

What does sustainable energy mean and what is a carbon footprint? Use the power of the sun and wind to get work done, by making solar distillers, solar ovens and wind turbines. Test your knowledge on energy conservation, and learn how we generate energy right here in Manitoba.
