Not all science happens in a laboratory. This summer spend some time in the great outdoors exploring what it might be like to become a botanist, zoologist or geologist. This camp includes two overnight camp outs (Monday and Wednesday nights) and time at the museum, in the desert, at a lake, on a mountain top and underwater (in a pool as we learn to scuba dive). Hands-on field research will allow students a real world experience in learning about the natural world and developing a passion to preserve and protect it.  See website for scholarship application.  $375 Non-members;  $345 Members
