Summer Day Camps


Summer Day Camps were a success!

This year was our first time hosting summer day camps!!!  Students had the opportunity to learn hands-on about soil, water, gardening, composting and the environment.  As well as experience the IQhub, a 9,500 square foot agricultural museum, which is home to history, innovation and exploration.

The day camps were targeting students from ages 8 – 11 years old.  (Current 2nd – 5th Graders.)  Programs were offered on Tuesday and Thursday (June 19th & 21st), with 24 students participating each day.

Please check back, for more information about day camps for next summer!!!

 

Please Note:  This camp is geared towards students who have a passion for science, especially Agriculture and the Environment.  Students will need to dress accordingly for the weather and be prepared to be outside for several hours. Students must also be able to walk for a mile or more.
