Rewind: Back to Dino Times

Grab your gear and travel back in time for this exciting, dinosaur themed, experience.  Become a mini paleontologist and participate in numerous "dino" activities that will give campers a chance to dig into the days when dinosaurs still roamed the earth.  Activities will take you from fossil construction to an archaeological dig as well as related arts and crafts, all designed to give your child a more in-depth understanding of life in the land of the dinosaurs!

Pause: Discover Da Vinci

Lori Smith, Instructor

Become an apprentice in the "bottega" of Leonardo Da Vinci and experience the day-to-day life of a great maestro.  Bring your sense of wonder, exploration and discovery to the kinds of tasks that Leonardo immersed himself in as he explored his world and used these understandings to inspire and express his inventiveness and unique genius.

Fast Forward: Into the Future
