Day Camps


Science Camp     Have you ever wanted to go turtle trapping or hunt for animal tracks? Maybe you would rather do a little snake-wrangling or bug catching! These are just some of the exciting activities that ESU Biology faculty will lead your child through in this ESU Biology Camp. This camp will run the week of June 6-10.  Activities will include both indoor and outdoor activities. Campers will meet each morning on the 1st floor of the ESU Science Hall and will need to bring a sack lunch Monday through Thursday. Lunch will be provided on Friday.
