Summer Science camp coming soon

Posted

Science is one of my favorite subjects. 

I love animals. I like asking questions and doing experiments.  I like spiders and insects (except flies and mosquitoes), and I try to insert science in most of my conversations. Those of you that know me at all probably aren’t surprised by any of these statements.  

Since I am always looking for more ways to incorporate science into the daily lives of children, I am leading a brand-new camp this summer: Science Camp! 

This camp is geared towards children ages 5-7 and will take place on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, July 18-20.  Camp will start at 10 a.m. and run until 3 p.m. at the Haskell Ag Lab in Concord.  

Children are asked to bring a sack lunch, sunscreen, bug spray, and wear closed-toed shoes with weather-appropriate clothing. We also may get messy, so steer clear of anything that you do not want your child to get dirty!  

The cost for camp is $30 per child and covers materials and a snack each day. We haven’t quite nailed down the topics yet because, honestly, there are so many cool things we could do! However, some possibilities include space, dinosaurs, kitchen science, animals, and more! 

So, what are you waiting for?  If you have children who love science and like to participate in hands-on activities, sign them up by emailing sarah.roberts@unl.edu or calling 402-584-2234.  

Spots are limited and the deadline to register is Wednesday, July 13 so we can make sure to have all our supplies ready to go!  Enjoy the summer and we hope to see you at camp!
