We generally follow Fulton County School's calendar and local elementary school calendars, and offer day camps when school is out.
Day camp drop-off begins at 8:30 am and pick-up is at 4:30pm. Extended hours are available (8:00am-5:30pm).
Please send students with two snacks, water bottle and a packed lunch.
Sibling discount (10% off) is available at checkout (excluding Girl Scout camps).
WE PROVIDE THE SUPPLIES!
We have put together science supplies for online workshops that local families can pick up so the kids can do the experiments along with us during the week. You can register for single experiments or a whole day of experiments (at a discount).
10:30-11:30am – CRYSTALLIZATION – ONLINE LAB - Students conduct two art experiments as they learn about solutions, saturations and crystallization as they create their own crystals.
1:00-2:00pm – ROCKS AND GEODES – ONLINE LAB - Kids explore rocks and minerals, learn how geodes are formed and break open their very own geode to discover what minerals make up the crystals inside.
2:30-3:30pm – FOSSIL DIG – ONLINE LAB - We investigate the ways paleontologists uncover the mysteries of the past, look at fossils to determine what type they are, and conduct their own dinosaur dig.
10:30-11:30am – CIRCULATORY SYSTEM – ONLINE LAB - Kids examine what our blood is made of by creating a model of blood, view blood cells under a microscope, and learn how blood moves through our body.
1:00-2:00pm – NERVOUS SYSTEM – ONLINE LAB - Students investigate a brain as they learn the parts of the nervous system. We also test our senses and learn what part of the brain is responsible for interpreting the world around us.
2:30-3:30pm – DIGESTIVE SYSTEM – ONLINE LAB - What kids doesn’t like to talk about poop? This is a gross (and awesome) lab, we discuss the function of the digestive system and each organ involved in the digestive process, as well as create a model of this system to see how it works.
10:30-11:30am – PHYSICS OF SOUND – ONLINE LAB - Kids explore the movement of sound waves and learn how we hear vibrations as we conduct sounds experiments and create listening cups.
1:00-2:00pm – PHYSICS OF LIGHT – ONLINE LAB - We conduct an experiment with glow sticks to learn about chemiluminescence, and test for UV light with solar beads.
2:30-3:30pm – PHYSICS OF MOTION – ONLINE LAB - Students learn about forces and trajectories as they design and build a catapult to knock down our targets.
10:30-11:30am – THE DIAPER EXPERIMENT – ONLINE LAB - We explore polymers as we learn the science of water beads, and determine how much liquid a diaper will hold.
1:00-2:00pm – GERMS – ONLINE LAB - We demonstrate the importance of washing our hands with a fun germy demonstration, and let kids test what is on their hands in a bacterial growth experiment.
2:30-3:30pm – OWL PELLET DISSECTIONS – ONLINE LAB - Kids learn about food webs as they learn about owl pellets and dissect their own to see what their owl ate.
10:30-11:30am – FLASHLIGHT CIRCUITS – ONLINE LAB - Kids learn about simple circuits as they create a popsicle stick flashlight with copper tape and LEDS.
1:00-2:00pm – BRISTLEBOTS – ONLINE LAB - We use our knowledge about circuits to create tiny robots that can spin and dance across the floor.
2:30-3:30pm – SCRIBBLING ROBOTS – ONLINE LAB - Use a toy motor to design, build and test a simple robot that can draw or walk around.
Tuesday, May 19 8:30am-4:30pm (extended hours available) Ages 5-11
It is almost summer! Campers get a head start on summer fun and as they explore the physics needed to launch water balloons and paper rockets, conduct experiments using the sun's rays, use science to make the best bubbles. Warning – kids might get wet today!

GIRL SCOUT STEM CAMP – Juniors and Cadettes
Tuesday, May 19th
8:30am-4:30pm (half days available)
Juniors and Cadettes earn up to eight badgesduring our Girl Scout STEM Camp. Our morning session is focused on computational thinking and and programming basics through online and offline coding activities. Juniors and Cadettes earn their Coding for Good 1, 2 and 3 Badges and Think Like a Programmer Badge. Note: The Take Action badge is not earned during this workshop and must be completed elsewhere to complete the Journey. Girl Scouts are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet, or they can share one of ours (a physical keyboard is recommended).
Our afternoon theme is Space Robots, where Juniors and Cadettes model our solar system to explore how planets move, investigate the electromagnetic spectrum, learn how telescopes are used to explore space, and create models of constellations, and create motorized robots the girls design and program to explore space. Juniors earn their Space Science Investigator Badgeand Robotics 1, 2 and 3 Badges. Cadettes their Space Science Researcher Badgeand Robotics 1, 2 and 3 Badges.
Already earn some of these badges? Girls can receive a STEM fun patch instead.
Full day: Please send campers with two snacks, water bottle and a packed lunch.
Half day: Please send campers with one snacks and a water bottle.
Location: STEM Lab (Suite 21)
Full day: $75/Girl Scout
Morning session (8:30am-12:00pm): $45/Girl Scout
Afternoon session (1:00pm-4:30pm): $45/Girl Scout
