Summer Camps 2017

academic summer camps

Bethel’s summer academic camps give campers, from age 9-14, the chance to explore their interests with college professors, instructors and leaders who channel their knowledge into a fun, hands-on learning experience. Make new friends and explore with us at summer camp! (For athletic fun, see below for sports camps.)

Science Camps

Backyard Biology

Cassie May, Assistant Professor of Biology

Nature is amazing and diverse, even in our own backyard! We will examine wildlife found in ponds, woods, and prairies using scientific tools like binoculars, microscopes, and nets. Through hands-on experiments, we will learn about the importance of diversity in nature, how animals interact, and the role of habitat. Come and explore the great outdoors and become a backyard biologist!
