We will splash, spatter and saturate surfaces so make sure to bring a large shirt to protect your clothing. Instructor: Alice Tzakais, Art Instructor, North Fond du Lac

ARCHITECTURE ADVENTURE
Have you ever wondered what an architect does? Do you know some famous architects? Do you know what kind of training architects need? These are a few of the questions that will be discussed. We will see how architecture combines art with science, and math. Our main challenge will be designing and constructing tabletop cityscapes out of random pieces of wood, metal, plastic, and cardboard. When our relief sculptures are assembled, we’ll add color and texture to make our cityscapes all the more awesome! Instructor: Faye Kemnitz, Art Instructor, Faith Lutheran School

CHEMISTRY IS EVERYWHERE!
Chemistry is literally everywhere! From the food we eat to the TV you watch at night, nothing would be possible without chemistry. In this hands-on class, you will learn about the nature of solids, liquids, and gases, and how you can control the reactions involving these states of matter. Then, you will use your knowledge to perform tests to find out what kinds of juice have the most vitamin C and which cereals and soda have the most sugar (your parents should love that!). Instructor: Stephanie Ballard, Science Instructor, Campbellsport School District 

ESCAPE, BREAKOUT, BEAT THE CLOCK… CONTINUED!
Work with a team and on your own to “breakout” in a series of adventures. In this class you will do several versions of escape room activities by solving puzzles, using clues, hints, and strategy to break open a box, escape a room, solve an online mystery, and more! Do you have what it takes to escape? There will be an opportunity for students, family, and friends to “break out” of a real escape room as a separate field trip after class one night the week of camp. Information will come home with students and via email. Separate fee required. Instructor: Gina Rieder, Social Studies Teacher, Sabish Middle School

¡HABLAMOS ESPAÑOL! – WE SPEAK SPANISH!
Students will be chatting away in Spanish after participating in this conversational Spanish course! Through music, games, storytelling, and other interactive activities, participants will learn Spanish greetings, days of the week, numbers, animals, descriptions, and more! Viva el español! Instructor: Paige Kudlik, Spanish Teacher, Fond du Lac School District

H2O WILD!
Did you know that 71% of the earth’s surface is water and 60% of the human body is water? H2O is essential for life, but how clean our waterways? In H2O Wild!, participants will learn about aquatic ecosystems and their health through hands-on activities done in the ponds and stream located on the Fond du Lac campus. Students will test and analyze these waterways for chlorine, nitrates, phosphates, dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity. They will also uncover the world of macroinvertebrates and learn their importance as biotic indicators of waterway health. Instructor: Shawn Herkstroeter, M.Ed., Life Science teacher at Faith Lutheran School, FDL

 

ALL DAY CAMP

SMART PHONE ROBOTICS
Create a robot from scratch that can be controlled by your smart phone! You will start with a pile of parts, then assemble and wire it up. You’ll write computer code to control your robots’ exact behavior. This year’s robot has an all new design. On the final day, each robot will attempt challenges for earning points. One robot will walk away as champion, but all will have fun and learn. Bring your own Android or Apple smart phone or tablet. If you do not have one, we will provide one for you during the class. Instructor: John Papenheim, WTCS Certified Electronics & Robotics Instructor
