Learn about the archaeology of the Calusas in our new “Natives of Southwest Florida” exhibit. There’s a good chance the campers will be the first people to experience it.
Meet guest speaker Rachel Kangas of the Florida Public Archaeology Network will discuss Pytrotechnology, including a hands-on experiment.
Get assigned to a Calusa village, which will be your team you work with for our survival challenges over the course of the week.
Visit the Randell Research Center in Pine Island is home to some of our area’s best examples of Calusa mounds. You’ll get to see Southwest Florida through the eyes of the Calusas at the site of one of the most powerful Calusa villages.
Dive in to explore a sunken ship and offshore reef with a virtual experience that requires no certification. Explore marine and freshwater ecosystems and life forms with a trip to the beach as you wade in the mudflats to discover what's above and below the surface. Cast your net and observe your catch, take water samples, follow the flow, and dig into the engineering behind our beloved river. Look to history to examine its roots and uncover the stories that prompted the civil engineering overhaul that unknowingly created the challenges in the news today. As water warriors, you'll team up to learn more about what we can do and propose your own solutions.
Physics has never looked so cool! Experiment with energy, forces, and interactions as you take flight in a paper airplane contest, play a little Bernoulli ball, and experiment with jet propulsion. Explore the scientific principles of flight and rocketry as you use creative techniques to construct custom kites and build and launch model rockets! Look to our past to follow the evolution of space exploration, then prepare to take LAUNCH for this camp is out of this world!
Technology is EVERYWHERE! It is your smartphone, your house, a pencil--almost anything made by humans that solves a problem! Explore past and recent advances in technology through coding, programming, circuitry, and electronics. Work with our tech team to enhance IMAG history education by using 3-D modeling, augmented reality, and virtual reality to explore the world of our ancestors and the life forms that came before. Leave a tech wizard as you think creatively to program an interactive story, design a video game, and complete a circuit to light up some LEDs! Innovate away as we look to the future for inspiration and new problems to solve.
All camp sessions include fun and educational hands-on activities, games, crafts, special guests, and exhibit exploration! Innovative curriculum integrating science, the arts, and humanities, inspires the imagination and encourages an overall love of learning! Camps are designed for rising 1st - 6th graders, and each session will be divided into two classes based on camper age.
