I just finished my job as a teaching assistant at the Hollingworth Science Camp. This year's camp-wide theme was Astronomy. My group of co-teachers focused on teaching flight and aerodynamics to third-fourth graders.
It was a great summer and I miss all of my campers! Have a great summer and see you next year!
At camp, the students engage in lots of science explorations and experiments. They go swimming at least three times a week and have outdoor play (organized outdoor activities) everyday. There is also a parade of their art that each grade has been working on throughout the month. Our art that we made for the parade were hot air balloons (See pictures above). I think it's pretty neat because it combines both science investigations with physical activities, which is distinct from summer camps that only focus on physical activities.
The camp has a lot to offer and I've copied the link to their website for parents of students looking for a great science camp for their children below.
