What better time to explore the great outdoors than summer? Join us as we dive into the world of plants, animals, and the habitats where they live. Campers will learn about the plant cycle while doing yoga, walk to DGCM’s community garden, go on a search for insects, and discover Earth’s natural cycles. This camp is also filled with fun story times and crafts perfect for little hands that are building their fine motor skills.

Crafts and Concoctions

Science and art are more similar than you think! Join us this week as we create beautiful pieces of art and explore the science behind them. Things will be fizzing, popping, and changing colors in this exciting camp. Little ones will get to do salt-watercolor paintings, explore exciting chemical reactions, and do a nature-themed mandala. This is a great camp for both budding chemists and artists!

While many of us may have been stuck in our houses for the past year, computers and the internet have brought us closer to people around the world than ever before.
