2016 Summer Camps

Embark on a summer adventure to a land of imagination and science like none other. Join Jack and Jill as they battle Evil Mister Fred and his mustached minions on planet Urf, underwater and in space. Rock-It Science uses storytelling to engage kids in creative problem solving and give purpose to the hands-on science experiments that follow. Summer camp includes the best classic Rock-It Science experiments, including melting pennies with a solar furnace, experimenting with liquid nitrogen, and blasting bottle-creatures with a tesla coil. Many experiments also involve making toys kids can take home and play with, for hours of additional fun and learning.

Action Camp -- June 13-17 OR July 11-15
Blast Camp -- June 20-24 OR July 18-22
Crash Camp -- June 27-July 1 OR July 25-29

Action Camp -- June 13-17 OR July 11-15

Sparks will fly this week, along with water balloons, rockets, and smoke rings. Even campers will get a chance to rise into the air, with ropes and pulleys. There will also be some oozing, melting and shrinking, as we test and transform materials using heat, chemicals and occasionally our bare hands. We’ll explore temperature extremes and cook a campfire treat using only the sun.
Each day we will select two or three experiments from the list below, depending on weather and ability of the students. We reserve the right to change the subjects as necessary to meet the needs of the children.

Blast Camp -- June 20-24 OR July 18-22

Don’t worry mom, we’ll keep your child safe… from boredom. The kiddies will be fine playing with fire, high voltage electricity, laser beams and liquid nitrogen. We’ll provide them with hot power tools and sharp objects so they can build medieval style weaponry and futuristic toys. If they learn something along the way, don’t blame us. Sometimes we just can’t stop them.

Fit For Fun

Get ready for games! Whether your child is headed for the playground or the playing field, this new program prepares them to enjoy participating in physical activities. The professional trainers at Zenith Strength and Performance use conditioning games to develop fundamental physical skills and movements, including running, jumping, lifting and throwing. Children build the body confidence and skill that become the basis of a healthy lifestyle.
The 90-minute Fit For Fun sessions start at 11 am, on the same days as Rock-it Science camps. Zenith is located in the same building as Rock-it Science, just two doors down.
Register for this class directly through Zenith, not through Rock-it Science.
Please Note: Zenith Strength and Performance is not affiliated in any way with Rock-it Science. Their facility is located next door to Rock-it Science, and we are providing this information merely as a convenience to our customers.

Rock-it Science Lunch Bunch

Students who are registered for BOTH a Rock-it Science Afternoon camp AND the "Fit for Fun" class at Zenith Strength & Performance (see above) can bring a sack lunch and eat together on the Rock-it Science back patio, creating a nearly full day of activities to ignite the body and brain.
Please note: We do not provide after-care. Morning camp students must be picked up at 12 pm. The "Lunch Bunch" option is offered ONLY for students who are enrolled in the morning "Fit For Fun" class AND an Afternoon Rock-It Science camp.
Lunch Bunch cost is $40 per week.
