Helix Summer Sessions

Summer 2014

Give your kids, ages 5 to 14, a minds-on, hands-on, fun experience this summer at Helix, where we explore the world around us by asking questions and designing investigations. Our summer sessions offer a mix of free time to explore exhibits and structured time for investigations in our workshop. We encourage campers to take responsibility for their own learning in a supportive environment and enable them to practice the valuable skills of working and learning in groups and partnerships.

Each camp session is one week. Camp is on Monday through Friday from 1:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m.


Helix Summer Sessions: Ages 7–10 and 11–14

These sessions will focus on investigating things that campers are curious about! Working with a partner, campers will develop a project or mini-exhibit to investigate their own question, and will display the project at Helix the weekend following each session. During the first session, we’ll focus on investigating questions related to light and seeing; the second session, will focus on investigating questions related to life and earth systems.
