Nature Rocks!

All campers are invited to join in the fun and use their curiosity, creativity, and investigative
problem-solving skills to enjoy science through hands-on experimentation and stimulating
activities. These aspiring scientists will travel from class to class both indoors and outdoors at
Gesu Catholic School. Certified teachers will use an inquiry-based approach to learning during
the four classes each day. Campers will explore their own “smarts” in a child-centered
environment while participating in science and gym activities throughout the week. Camp groups
consist of about 15 campers of similar ages under the care of the camp director, teachers and
older student counselors. We are proud of our great reviews every year!
