Group of Girls Meeting girls with similar interests...

A two-year program divided into 7th and 8th grade curricula encourages long-lasting friendships between girls with similar interests.

Not only is there so much to learn and discover, but the fun in doing so brings many 7th grade campers back for another awesome year!

This allows for many girls to maintain and build friendships over the course of two summers, and hopefully throughout their future endeavors.

Be WISE 7th Grade Camp Experience
One day is devoted to each field. After 3:00PM there are "all-camp" and recreational activities including swimming, coding, yard games, etc.

Ecology

What does it mean to reduce, reuse, recycle and precycle? In Ecology campers will experience the process of recycling paper, plastic and aluminum. Girls will discover how oil spills can endanger animals and their environment and will experiment to find the most successful way to clean the birds and environment affected by the oil.

Stream

In this class campers will join in the excitement of catching critters that live in the stream. They will take part in designing their own watershed communities and then put their designs to the “test” and observe and discuss the outcomes. Then the campers will engage in a little competition to develop a water purification device that will “cleanse” dirty or polluted water and test their results. Finally, campers will put their skills to work by dissecting preserved crayfish.

Students will build tetrahedronal kites. The models will then be combined to make a larger tetrahedron, and students will compare the ratio of the edge, area, and volume to the models to help understand scaling factors. Students will also use ratio and proportion to change a recipe to serve more or less people. Then they will make the recipe!

Physics

The focus in physics is on the science of bubbles. Our goal is to discover which gum and soap solution produces the largest bubbles. We will experiment with each solution and gum brand in order to draw conclusions. Students immerse themselves in bubble gum and soap solutions in order to discover which brand of each produces the largest bubbles.

Astronomy

The study of the stars, the moon, the planets and the solar system is achieved through the creation and analysis of the moon, the phases of the moon, and the surfaces of the planets. The power and impact of the phases of the moon are illustrated and articulated. Observations of the surfaces on the moon and planets are used in engineering design models of rovers and landing vehicles. The observations, inferences, and data collected from trials are used to solve challenges in the universe. Telescopes, astrolabes, and tools of the field are used to collect data, organize, and analyze data to generate questions and conclusions.

Chemistry

Students will study the Periodic Table where they will learn about atoms, elements, molecules and compounds. Different types of polymers will be created and their different properties will be discussed. Students will complete and experiment using household items to study endothermic-exothermic reactions.

Pond

At the pond, you will be limnologist. Your job for the day will be to decide if the pond at Denison University is healthy. You will conduct several chemical tests plus collect, observe and identify macroinvertebrates. Finally, you will analysis your data and draw your conclusions as to if the Denison Pond is healthy.

Looking at things through a different angle anything is possible.


You can do a lot when you’re working as a team.


I made “friends” quicker in 5 days than in 9 months of school. It is such a positive environment.


I loved the fact that our “family” living group was like a real family.


Classes were amazing –I learned so much in just one week!
