Have fun exploring, experimenting, testing, and learning while gaining valuable science skills.
Explore God’s handiwork, order, and logic in nature while participating in fascinating hands-on science activities. You’ll discover great ideas for science fair projects from the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering.
At this camp, experienced Pensacola Christian College faculty will give group instruction in various scientific fields, with hands-on exploration and experimentation. With access to college-level engineering and science labs and equipment, you’ll have many opportunities to learn and stretch your imagination.
Grades 9–12 (including Class of 2018 graduates)
No special background is required because campers learn about each topic during the camp sessions. Bring your own basic calculator and safety goggles. While at camp you will:
Explore scientific and engineering topics with your own hands-on investigations in a college laboratory.
Appreciate how godly scientists applied Biblical principles to their investigations of God’s physical creation.
Collaborate with fellow teammates to share your personal skills in the analysis and reporting of your team’s discoveries.
Compete against other teams composed of campers at your grade level. First place teams will be honored at the closing awards ceremony.
However you spend your free time, you’ll be spending it with your newfound friends. You can explore the Sports Center—climb the rock wall, bowl with friends, cool off in the ice skating rink, or make a splash at the water park. You can grab a smoothie at the Common Grounds Café and just hang out. Each day, chapel will be a time to come together and grow spiritually.
