Introduction from Director Lisa Brown and Assistant Director Stacey Carella 

3, 2, 1 BLASTOFF!  What a wonderful week we had! The Adventures Campers began the week by celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. They learned about the moon, its characteristics,  and phases, as well as, the planets in our solar system and the important role astronauts play. Our campers also visited the Hudson River Museum in Yonkers, New York where they enjoyed creating and launching rockets and attending a planetarium show.  What a BLAST they had learning all about space.

The Discoveries and Junior Campers soared to new heights as they explored the world beyond.  They engaged in various activities around planets, stars, the moon, astronauts, and much more.  Our campers were honored to have a visit from Laura Jean Checki, a Science Education and Public Outreach Specialist.  As an ambassador for NASA, Laura shared her wealth of knowledge with campers. The kids participated in an experiment with ultraviolet (UV) light-sensitive beads, which are generally white but turn colors when exposed to UV light.  After the presentation, the campers learned so much about our sun and solar system. The campers were over the moon learning about space exploration. 

We are looking forward to next week as we open the doors to Our Fantasy World.
