BE WISE CAMP EXPERIENCE:

This camp encourages long-lasting friendships between girls with similar interests.This allows for many girls to maintain and build friendships over the course of this camp and hopefully throughout their future endeavors.

This summer the curricula includes Ecology, Stream, Math and Physics. One day is dovoted to each discipline.

ECOLOGY

What does it mean to reduce, reuse, recycle and upcycle? In Ecology campers will experience the process of using items to reduce their imprint on the Earth.  Campers will also be using engineering design process to create a useful product related to their lives.

STREAM

In this class campers will join in the excitement of catching critters that live in the stream. They will take part in designing their own watershed communities and then put their designs to the “test” and observe and discuss the outcomes. Then the campers will engage in a little competition to develop a water purification device that will “cleanse” dirty or polluted water and test their results.

MATH

Students will build tetrahedral kites. The models will then be combined to make a larger tetrahedron, and students will compare the ratio of the edge, area, and volume to the models to help understand scaling factors. Students will also use ratio and proportion to change a recipe to serve more or less people. Then they will make the recipe!

PHYSICS

The focus in physics is the science behind bubbles. One of our goals is to discover which brand and/or flavor of gum produces the largest bubble. Our second goal is to determine which brand of soap creates the largest bubble dome.  Campers will discover what makes the swirling colors on the surface a bubble and why bubbles are shaped like a sphere.  Campers will build their own bubble blowing structures and also concoct their own bubble solution recipe to compete for the longest lasting bubble at camp.  A favorite culminating activity is being encased inside of a giant bubble.  Physics at camp is good, clean fun.

Not only is there so much to learn and discover, but the fun in doing brings many campers back for another awesome year!
