Wacky Weather—5-7 year olds (July 7th-11th)
This camp is all about how weather forms and how it affects the world around us.  We will use many tools and fun experiments to learn about all types of weather.

Wild Weather—8-12 year olds (July 14th-July 18th)
We will be focusing on the extreme side of things in this week long weather camp.  The campers will harness the power of lightning, create a tornado with their own two hands, and ultimately learn how to predict the weather.

Spend the week rocking out! Learn about unique rocks, minerals, fossils, and geological features around the world and here in TN. Have a chance to sift for fossils, explode a volcano, create a rock collection, and much more!
