"I aced 9th grad biology! It was all about what I learned in Gross Out Camp!" former camper.
"How did this student get so advanced in science?" asked a teacher - the answer: GROSS OUT CAMP! 40 hours of hands-on field biology.
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 the natural habitat for children! 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 are interested in.
Here's the technical stuff:
In this award-winning science camp, hands-on science experiments engage campers in biology, chemistry and physics-- as it relates to the gross wonders of the world!
The Gross Outdoors
