Engineering Imagination Vacation Camp
Explore the fascinating world of “S.T.E.A.M.” (Science, Technology, Engineering, Architecture, Mathematics) through the hands-on, minds-on, unique camps offered by Engineering Imagination! In this exciting and educational program, participants will use a wide variety of mediums such as LEGO®, KEVA®, R/C vehicles, as well as recycled materials to learn about, plan and build projects such as model bridges, factories and roller coasters. With activities and topics including mechanical engineering, architecture, reverse engineering, and environmental science, participants are sure to have a blast while learning along the way!

Skateboarding Vacation Camp
Join us for a week of skating and excitement! We will go over all the basics of skateboarding including learning the parts of the board and all the ramps in a skatepark, with fun games and activities included! Great for all ages and anyone interested in riding a skateboard. This camp will include instruction for beginners such as riding the board, board control, and balance. As participants advance, instructors will teach flat ground tricks and hitting the ramps. Based on skill level, they will work up to ollies and other fun tricks! 

Jungle Journey Art-Ventures in the Rain Forest
Art explorers take their inner artists for a walk in the rainforest and discover a variety of endangered creatures who live there. Lizards and poison dart frogs, bugs and butterflies, tigers and monkeys and more. Learn about the layers of the rainforest while experimenting with a variety of art forms. Experience fabric design while tie dyeing bandannas and making rainbow T-shirts. Sculpt animals out of clay, make 3-D paper reptiles, and create rainforest flowers. Decorate beach balls, draw tigers with oil pastels, and paint ceramic flower pots that look like boots. Discover stained glass and scratch art too. 

Rockin' Rockets
Children will step into the shoes of a rocket scientist and learn the fundamentals of flight, propulsion and rocket design. We'll have fun exploring astronomy and trying out various flight designs from hot air balloons to hovercrafts (and many more!) We'll launch a real model rocket every day and kids will build and take home their own Mad Science model rocket.
