YMCA Arlington Specialty Camp – STEM

SAVOR THE FLAVOR

Campers really get cooking in this introduction to the culinary arts where they learn to create fun things that you can eat! Incorporating cleanliness, nutrition, cooking terms, measuring, creating, sharing and EATING, this camp allows children to become little chefs. From chopping up to cleaning up, it’s all food for thought.

CRIME SCENE SCIENCE

Calling all Crime Science Young Investigators.  Perform cool science experiments that will make you feel like you are doing forensic science. CSI games with fingerprint, chromatography, solve a mystery a day with newly acquired skills that real detectors use to make for a summer of excitement.

GREEN THUMBS UP!

Get down and dirty in this green thumb camp. Learn all about plants, seeds, & soil as you watch your organic garden grow.

MAD SCIENTISTS

While schools out for the summer, science doesn’t take a break.  Through different experiments, campers will explore and dive deeper into the world of science.

SOARING HIGH

It’s a bird…it’s a plane, it’s a paper plane? While we all know how to fold the basic paper plane, it doesn’t mean it always flies. Learn the different techniques and folds to create your own gliding paper aircraft. Build your own ultimate paper airplane, launch an air powered rocket, design your own parachute, power a hot air balloon, all while learning the concepts of lift, thrust, drag and gravity.  It’s science on high.

SENSATIONAL SCIENCES

Join us for some amazing science experiments and cool projects! Make your own submarine diver game and learn about fluids and pressure. Learn chemistry concepts, build models or a vortex volcano in a bottle. Every day offers a new experience for campers to become scientific sleuths – learning how to ask bright questions and find right answers.

GAME LAB

Do you have an endless imagination and love to create? Come and explore the ins and outs of toys and games–even create and invent a few new ones of your own. Spend part of the week getting back to basics and learning why the old-school games never go out of style!
