SPORTS TECH EXPLORERS 

Ages 7-14 | SEARCH CODE: CPSTE44 FIND SESSIONS
Why pick one sport when you can play them all? Each day will focus on a different sport such as soccer, basketball, football, dodgeball and more. STEM and Sports camp is designed to teach campers recreational sports and the value of exercise. Focus will be placed on team play and skill development. Along with fun sports we can't forget STEM! Smash! Explosion! Reactions! This camp also takes science to the extreme. Campers will have a memorable experience as they interact with experiments that pop, fizz, and crackle! Campers will learn about why reactions occur and then create the reactions first-hand. Your camper will participate in team building games, arts & crafts, science experiments, and more!
