Summer Camps at Edison Ford Winter Estates

June 8, 2020 @ 8:00 am - August 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Edison and Ford Winter Estates is offering several summer camps for students 6 to 12 years old. Campers are separated into two age groups (6-8 and 9-12). The camps are fun, educational, and unlike other local opportunities.

Summer Camps begin on June 8 and end on August 2.

Campers will explore the “living laboratory” of the estates while the Wild Wizards teach topics in science technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM), plus history and the natural world. Most of the camps are available for both age groups; camps for younger students are less complex.

Camp options include the following:

  1. Gear Up – Runs 6/8 until 6/12 – Emerging engineers will explore activities related to the six simple machines. Campers learn how to multiply their strength as they work with pulleys, levers, gears and more. – Edison Ford members: $220.00 pp.; non-members: $250.00 pp
  2. Mad Chemistry – Runs 6/15 until 6/19 – Young chemists will engage in exciting experiments with household materials, including acids, bases, and reactions. Campers will perform a series of chemical experiments that reveal color changes, temperature changes, and the mystery behind everyday chemicals. – Edison Ford members: $220.00 pp; non-members: $250.00 pp
  3. Creative Coders – Runs 6/22 until 6/26 – Multiple platforms will be explored as campers take on daily computer challenges. Campers learn that a Raspberry Pi is more than a sweet treat that can be made from Scratch. The Raspberry Pi is a powerful and tiny computer and is explored along with Scratch, a dynamic and fun coding platform. This and more will be presented in this camp. – Edison Ford members: $220.00 pp; non-members: $250.00 pp
  4. Assembly Required – Runs 6/29 until 7/03 – Campers will use LEGO robotics to program their own creations.
