Week 1: Mad Scientists
We better bust out the lab coats and safety goggles as Campers explore all things ooey-gooey, fizzy, and electric. Get ready for a week of ah, eww, and whoa!
Week 2: Land Before Time
Campers will transform into archaeologists where their days will be spent digging up fossils and exploring what life was like in the Jurassic Era!

Campers, get ready to hop in your space ship as we travel to outer space and encounter galaxy slime, asteroids, and an alien invasion, oh my! 3, 2, 1 … BLAST OFF!
Week 4: We Built this City
By exploring the City of Monona, Campers will make some blueprints to develop their very own cities. Campers come design, name, make up laws, and elect a council for your city!
Week 5: The Sound of Music

Are you a singer, dancer, or a musician? We’ll help you find your talent, so get ready to make some noise! Campers will get creative and make their own instruments, enjoy a drum circle, dance blindfolded, and end the week with a red carpet event featuring…YOU!
Week 6: Imaginarium

Through hands-on experiments and projects, each camper will design, and test their creations in unique challenges while making messes and masterpieces with clay, paint, paper and more.
Week 7: It’s a Jungle Out There
Sneak through the trees, explore for snakes, birds, insects, plants, and wait! Was that a leopard? Which route will you take to get through the Jungle safely?

Don’t you hate it when you lose things? This week, Campers will learn top-notch sleuthing skills then put them to the test to solve an important case: something has been stolen from camp!
