Registration Opens for Expanded Da Vinci Science Center Summer Camps
The Da Vinci Science Center has opened registration for its Summer 2013 Camps and has expanded its camps to welcome students entering the eighth grade.
This year’s camp theme is Explore the Amazing, and programs will include a full-day Mini Medical School session for students entering grades 5-8 and several new morning and afternoon sessions for students entering preschool through eighth grade. Da Vinci Science Center Summer Camps had been open previously for students up to seventh grade.
The week-long day camps are held from June 17-Aug. 23, 2013. Morning sessions are held from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., and afternoon sessions are held from 1-4 p.m. Discounted Early-Bird Pricing is available through March 15, 2013. Details, schedules, and registration materials are available on the web at www.davincisciencecenter.org/camps.
The Mini Medical School session – part of the Da Vinci Science Center’s Year of the Human Body project with St. Luke’s University Health Network – will give campers explore medicine’s many careers with hands-on activities and field trips to Temple/St. Luke’s Regional Medical School campus in Bethlehem, Pa., and Lehigh Carbon Community College. This session is offered for students entering grades 5-8 on the weeks of Aug. 12-16, 2013, and Aug. 19-23, 2013.
Several additional new morning and afternoon sessions and some returning favorites allow campers explore many of the amazing things around them. New sessions include an exploration of superheroes and science fiction, opportunities for students to develop their own inventions, and a celebration of the human body’s disgusting functions in conjunction with the Da Vinci Science Center’s summer exhibit presentation of GROSSOLOGY: The (Impolite) Science of the Human Body.
