Week 1: Mad Scientists
We better bust out the lab coats and safety goggles as Campers explore all things ooey-gooey, fizzy, and electric. Get ready for a week of ah, eww, and whoa!
Week 2: Land Before Time
Campers will transform into archaeologists where their days will be spent digging up fossils and exploring what life was like in the Jurassic Era!
Week 3: Space Jam
Campers, get ready to hop in your space ship as we travel to outer space and encounter galaxy slime, asteroids, and an alien invasion, oh my! 3, 2, 1 … BLAST OFF!
Week 4: We Built this City
By exploring the City of Monona, Campers will make some blueprints to develop their very own cities. Campers come design, name, make up laws, and elect a council for your city!
Week 5: The Sound of Music

Are you a singer, dancer, or a musician? We’ll help you find your talent, so get ready to make some noise! Campers will get creative and make their own instruments, enjoy a drum circle, dance blindfolded, and end the week with a red carpet event featuring…YOU!
Week 6: Imaginarium

Through hands-on experiments and projects, each camper will design, and test their creations in unique challenges while making messes and masterpieces with clay, paint, paper and more.
Week 7: It’s a Jungle Out There
Sneak through the trees, explore for snakes, birds, insects, plants, and wait! Was that a leopard? Which route will you take to get through the Jungle safely?*

Don’t you hate it when you lose things? This week, Campers will learn top-notch sleuthing skills then put them to the test to solve an important case: something has been stolen from camp!
