Green Herons 2021 Themes

Session 6 (July 26-30): Pirate Adventures

Ahoy, Mateys!! Come join us as campers transform into pirates through a variety of STEM-focused science experiments and hands-on engineering design activities. Some activities will include learning to make a treasure map, searching for buried treasure, tying knots to design their own pirate ships. Throughout the week we will voyage through the seven seas and explore the depths of the ocean. By the end of the week, campers will be singing “Yo ho ho, it’s a pirate’s life for me!

Session 4 (July 12-16): Mission Impossible

​The campers’ mission, should they choose to accept it... is to use their training and expertise to complete a mission that is almost impossible.

Campers will report to Agency Headquarters and receive the gadgets and tools they need to complete their stealth operation. Campers will need to decipher and create secret codes, concoct truth serums, navigate their way through lasers, and analyze clues. This will be a week full of mystery and intrigue that is sure to captivate even the bravest of secret agents.

​This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.

Come and dig for dinosaur bones, make your very own dinosaur teeth, and have a blast learning tons of awesome facts about dinosaurs through stories, hands-on activities, and an excavation project right here at camp!

Session 7 (August 2-6): LEGO Mania

Five fun-filled days of LEGO awesomeness are waiting! Campers will create a variety of LEGO builds while learning, building, and exploring different LEGO themes each day. Campers will use their imaginations to create LEGO-themed crafts, and interact with all sorts of LEGO contraptions.

​It’s a bit of LEGO overload, but that’s a good thing!

Session 5 (July 19-23): H20 Yeah!

Just add water to make a week of crazy fun!

Campers will beat the heat each day by getting to play in the water. Super-soaker fun and water relay contests will make sure there is not a dry eye in the place. We will squirt, splash and soak our way to laughter. (Don't forget to bring another set of clothes…or you will be all washed up!) This is water fun at its best!

Session 8 (August 9-13): Herons Ever After

We're off on an adventure to the land of fairy tales, magic, and more! Get ready to explore what happens at the end of some of our favorite stories. We'll make new friends, discover hidden talents, and so much more in this exciting last week of camp.
