Weekly Camps

Bionerds offers a-week long camps throughout the Winter, Spring, and Summer Breaks.  Guest speakers (related to nature wildlife, marine life, and research/medical fields) may be also offered for some sessions.  The registration for in-person camps may come with a little “live friends” (upon your permission depending on class topics) or toys, a Bionerds Certificate at the end of the session, and, of course, fun times with the Bionerds staffs.  We offer half-day camps in the morning or afternoon (2-3 hours each day) on all sites and full-day camps (multiple half-day camps back to back) on some sites.

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) current situation, we are currently having our classes ONLINE.  We are planning to offer our in-person programs as soon as it is safe to do so.  The online camp descriptions are similar to our in-person camp descriptions below, but the activities will be live demonstrations/instructions instead that students can follow during class.  We’ll send family with a simple supply list for them to gather at home and activities to print out, if any, before class, but not a requirement to have.

 

Please read our In-Person Class Protocol for Parents or Guardians to review how Bionerds will do an extra length to keep our students and teachers safe in class.
