Main Camp Themes (Ages 3-10)

Week 1: Young Picassos

Campers will take educational journeys to famous art museums and create their own works of art to place on exhibit at Cranium Museum, available to tour at the end of the week!

Week 2: Young Astronomers


Discover galaxies far, far away through the lens of a virtual telescope. Through reading, math, art, virtual journeys, and fun physical training, campers will have a blast as they investigate outer space.

Week 3: Dino Dig

Join us at our excavation site as we discover the ancient world of dinosaurs through art and literature. Campers will also enjoy creating prehistoric art and their own fossils to take home, while discovering paleontology.

Week 4: Science Exploration


Time to “burn” some energy! Children will enjoy fun activities and take virtual quests around the world as they learn all about energy and how it’s made.

Week 5: Marvelous Music

Move and groove to marvelous music from around the world! Young musicians will take a musical journey exploring beats and rhythms, and learn about various music styles and genres.

Week 6: Backpacking Around the World

Grab your gear and prepare for the trip of a lifetime! Campers will take an educational journey around the world, learning about the language, art, customs, and geography of countries visited along the way.

Week 7: Kids Café

Campers become owners, chefs, waiters, and consumers of their very own restaurant. Cranium Kids will use their reading, math, critical thinking, and artistic skills while working as a team to open the Cranium Cafe’!

Week 8: Safari Expedition


First stop is Africa and the great animal migration through the Serengeti. Campers will encounter the “Big Five” animals and learn all about their natural habitats.

Week 9: Junior Meteorologist

Embark on a severe weather adventure encountering lightning, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and winter storms along the way! Campers will learn about the weather and work together to survive their extreme weather journey.

Week 10: Techy Tots


Your Techy Tot will explore some of the latest technologies that are changing the world we live in today. Campers will play and create using various types of technology and their “e-maginations”!

STEM Camp (Ages 4-5)

Week 2: I Wanna Be… An Astronaut

Three, two, one…blast off! From exploring the design of the International Space Station to simulating the handling and examining of moon rocks, our budding astronauts will learn about rockets, planets, and our solar system.

Week 4: I Wanna Be… A Physicist

It’s time for campers to think like real scientists! Using the scientific method, little brains ponder a variety of physics-related topics and learn what it means to make hypotheses, perform experiments, record data, and examine results.

Week 8: I Wanna Be… An Engineer

Calling all builders, designers, inventors, and dreamers! By exploring many engineering disciplines ranging from biomedical to electrical, little hands work to create innovative projects that engage and amaze!

Week 10: I Wanna be… A Coder

Calling all future coders! Using the ScratchJr tablet app, budding computer scientists build a foundation for computer programming, and engage in unplugged activities enabling problem-solving and programming logic.

STEM Camp (Ages 6-10)

Week 2: Rocket Science: Destination Mars!

Join our flight crew as we blast off to Mars! This exciting camp is all about rockets and how they are fueling our knowledge of other worlds. Campers learn what it takes to be a real rocket scientist!

Week 4: Potent Potions and Fizzing Formulas

Junior scientists explore the magic of chemistry in this exciting camp that is full of actions and reactions! We’ll reveal the science as polymers, rate of reaction, oxidation and chromatography.

Week 8: 21st Century Robotics: Bigger Stronger Faster

Kids will study the fundamentals of engineering and technology necessary to create amazing robots, and then construct simplified models of their own to reinforce the principles learned.

Week 10: Coding and Animation

Using MIT’s Scratch computer language, campers create code that combines logic and creativity to bring objects to life through computer programming and animation.
