Each team will use their skills and abilities to learn more about the natural world. Each person is a vital team member, helping the group have fun while achieving their goals.

Like all scientists, we’ll get dirty, use all kinds of cutting edge technical equipment (Vernier probes, IPads, Stereoscopes, video cams etc), do simulations with different materials each day to make learning fun. In addition to challenges, you'll be working together to understand how systems can work together to help create a more sustainable world.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Hidden River, this science based STEM camp uses a place-based experiential approach to learning. Campers will learn how to work together from one challenge to another using their knowledge and teamwork skills to meet each challenge. The goal is to become Stewards of the Sound through positive action for our local community.

Tuition is $280 for the five day program for campers.  We do have Scholarships for families who need help with tuition. 

Hours are 8:30 to 4:00.           Camp location: Brightwater Center, Woodinville, WA.
