This camp puts children on a “deserted island” on which they must work together to devise a means for collecting food and water, build shelters, bridges, and learn about the science behind survival fun! They use the tools at hand to write messages to send in a bottle and witness a volcanic eruption. The children eventually design a means to escape the island and come home. (Ages 6 – 11)

These are only a sample of some of the activities that we will be doing each day. The topics will not necessarily follow this order. However, each of these topics will be included at some point in the camp.

Shipwrecked – Imagine finding yourself on a deserted island with only a few supplies. What better way to inspire your own creations? Add into the day a tsunami and see how resourceful you can be using Ben Franklin’s inventions as inspiration.

Forts and Flingers – Explore catapults, trebuchets, and more of his amazing inventions during this action packed camp day. Protect camp while working on your fort and design different flying and flinging devices, including your own flying dragon! Practice your skills of observation.

Escape from Shipwreck Island – Witness a volcano erupt and see who will be the captain’s first mate for escape! Build another bridge so you can scout the island for the best place to take off. Campers work on a sail boat as they explore ideas for escaping the island to safety!
