Step into the wizarding world of Harry Potter. This magical week starts with a house sorting ceremony, then a bit of wandlore where students make their own wands. What will the core of your wand be? Unicorn Hair, Phoenix Feather, Dragon Heart String or perhaps hairs from a Veela? Throughout the week students will attend classes specific to Hogwarts and special events that are generally science based. For example, in Potions, students will learn some basic chemistry, as well as create their own edible potion. Other classes include Care of Magical Creatures, Ancient Runes, and Charms to name a few. Special events will include a search for the Sorcerer's Stone, competing in the Tri-Wizard Tournament, and a Horcrux Hunt.
*Please note students will spend less time in the outdoors during this camp and it does not include the outdoor education component of the regular camps.

What is the Earth made of? This week you will explore the Earth's layers, rocks and minerals, and local geology. You will collect and observe the three different rock types, as well as simulate how they are made. Pan for "gold" and learn how to test whether it is the real thing. Find out how the fossil record provides evidence for plate tectonics and how our Earth is changing, collect fossils from an ancient sea and make our own “fossils”. Includes field trip to Timpanogos Cave. Campers will hike each day to collect rocks for their collection.
