Join us as we present the Fresh Air Family's award-winning science camp! (Yes, they're going to learn but please don’t tell the kids)

Who loves bugs, worms, dirt, reptiles, slime?? -- Then Gross Out Camp is for you. This award-winning science camp will serve 20 children in the kind of science kids love: outside, hands-on, and a bit disgusting

The camp combines hands-on field biology, science experiments, exploring, journaling, and nature-inspired arts and crafts to address a variety of learning styles. Activities include Meet-a-Tree (scientific observation), Create-a Creature (scientific description), and making slime (chemistry, plus it’s fun -- and gross). A live animal program will introduce students to the world of snakes and reptiles.

They will be outdoors, in the healthy fresh air, where sunshine beams on our smiles. It’s the most fun a kid can have while learning!

We guarantee tired, dirty children (who learned lots)!

If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email Michelle at 716.695.8550 Ext 5510 or
