4-H Green Science Adventure Camp
Date: July 30, 2012 - August 3, 2012
Location: Wolcott Mill Metropark Farm Center, 65775 Wolcott Road, Ray Township, Mich.
The 4-H Green Science Adventure Camp will offer young people ages 5-10 the opportunity to experience science outdoors in an interactive, experiential setting. Weather-permitting, campers will spend a majority of their week outdoors. Camp hours are Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Aftercare will be available at an additional cost.
What is green science you ask? It’s the use of science in
our daily lives. Ever wonder how milk from a cow becomes ice cream?
Where salsa from the grocery store gets its start? Why is the syrup in your
pancakes so sweet? How does your Halloween Jack O’ Lantern get so big? Why does
grass grow in your yard but not in the forest? Are worms really the best fish
Participants explore these questions and more while inquiring about the world around them. Educational activities are led by trained staff and certified teachers and are aligned with the state grade level content expectations. Participants experience science and take charge of their learning hands on, (and they won’t even realize it).
