Gross-ology: Ooey Gooey You (ages 6-8)

ID : 13314   
« back to classes page

Did you know you’ve got more than 5 senses? Or that you make a new batch of snot every 20 minutes to keep dirt and germs out of your body? What about that your intestines, unfolded, are the same length as two cars? The science of the human body is often gross, but always fascinating. Come learn about all the systems that make you, you! 

Each day, you’ll step into the role of biologists, pathologists, and doctors to investigate what makes your body work. Test your senses, make “booger” slime, extract fruit DNA, discover why washing your hands is important, and so much more in this interactive, hands-on camp! 

Students will take home lab experiments and projects created during the week, to continue their life science explorations once the camp has concluded!

Please read:  Before bringing your child to camp, please read through this list. Following these steps will help us assure that your child is safe, healthy, and has tons of fun at camp!

  • Need help finding your child’s classroom? Campus maps are available here.
      • Always send your child with a snack and a drink. Food = mood, and we want campers to be at their best! No food is available on campus.
      • Please be sure you have notified us of any behavioral or medical conditions we need to be aware of to help your child have a successful week at camp.
      • Campers need to be signed out every day by the individuals who have been approved by parent or legal guardian to pick them up, and are required to show a photo ID every day.
      • In order to protect the privacy and security of all minors on our campus, photographs by parents and family members in class are not permitted. Instructors and Extension staff often take photos and may share them with campers’ families via email once camp has concluded. Campers’ name tags will be removed for these photographs to respect and protect privacy. Please contact the Extension office directly if you do not want your child to be included in any photographs taken by our staff.
      • Cell phones or hand held games may not be used during camps.
      • Campers are not permitted to use the vending machines during camps.
