Hands on Health Day Camps
For 1st - 6th Graders
O POISON IVY. NO BUGS. JUST a whole week of smart fun!
Junior scientists get real hands-on learning about how their amazing bodies work and find out from the pros about grown-up medical careers. Junior-version scientific research include dissections of a calf brain, heart and eye for 4-6 graders and even a trip to The Cleveland Clinic to meet doctors and observe ongoing medical research.
Campers test the scientific method in Think Like a Scientist followed by four days of activities focused on body topics: Mind Matters (brain); The Eyes Have It (optical illusions and more in "sights"); The Shape You're In (muscles & skeleton), The Beat Goes On (heart & lungs) and You Are What You Eat (nutrition). By week's end campers conclude that Breaking Up is Hard To Do when they take on roles of the various body systems and learn that they can't survive as a "body" unless all systems work together.
