Snakes, a red-tailed hawk, crawdads, roly poly races, slime and polar, non-polar molecules – all of this plus the freedom to explore the natural world, comprise Fresh Air Family's award-winning Gross Out Camp. It is the kind of science children love: hands-on, a bit disgusting, and all taking place in the Great Outdoors. It's a child's natural habitat! We offer campers the opportunity to learn, and they do, in spades, real spades as they dig up decomposers, i.e. worms and roly polies. All of our lessons are based on design-thinking -- which creates critical thinking skills.
It is also fun -- because we believe nothing is more fun than learning! With hands-on activities in summer camp, we address every learning style so that every child can be successful. Using self-directed studies, the children can learn at their own pace -- and focus on what they discover.
