Daily Themes for Spring Break 2013
Let's Have an Adventure (Monday, April 1st)
Prepare for a day of outdoor adventure as we explore all over the grounds of Rock Eagle while we form new bonds of friendship. Groups will learn outdoor skills and play games that are both physically and mentally challenging as well as fun.
Inside the Earth (Tuesday, April 2nd)
Journey with us as we investigate the mysteries of the deep earth. We'll learn about different rocks and minerals as well as discuss fossils and how they form. Students will take a tour of our natural history museum and have the opportunity to visit the gift shop.
Movin' and a Shakin' (Wednesday, April 3rd)
There will be action and excitement as we learn about the physical world and how things work. We'll perform an egg drop to test gravity, do experiments to understand the forces that make things move and see just how we stack up to Einstein.
Our Living World (Thursday, April 4th)
Today we put on our lab coats and study the world of biology from the tiniest plants and animals to the largest and oldest living things. Students will get to interact with the many animals we have at Rock Eagle and learn how plants and animals interact with each other.
Give Me Some Energy (Friday, April 5th)
In this energetic conclusion to camp, students will learn about how the earth gets and uses all its energy. We'll find out how energy changes states, why magnets work, what makes things explode and do all sorts of crazy, fantastic experiments that will have everyone begging to come back next year.
Campers will be divided by grade.
