Wind: Discover the power of wind! Over the course of the day, campers will explore the elusive aspects of wind, from differences in wind intensities to the powerful machines that harness wind’s power. Using what they have learned, campers will create their own wind-powered machines.
Water: Water is one of earth’s most precious resources. On this day, campers will focus on water conservation and examine local water sources.
Fire: As part of a study of how fire can be harnessed and used, campers will work collaboratively to complete fire trivia puzzles and cook a meal. They will also use fire to create dyes from nature.
Wood: A common resource, the many forms of wood are vital to animals and humans alike. Campers will discover what role wood plays in the life cycle and how that role gives life to animals. In order to give back to nature, campers will construct animal habitats.
Stone: On the final day, campers will go on a rock hunt, exploring the relationship between geography and stone types. In addition, campers will discover the various forms of stone and their uses. Lessons from previous days will also be used for a final challenge of the five elements.
