Summer Camp 2023
Note: Campers must have a general interest in STEM.
Conservation Camps take place on the 200-acre property in Brillion that AriensCo manages for native habitat restoration. AriensCo received Conservation Certification for its efforts from the Wildlife Habitat Council in 2020. Campers will be able to explore a variety of local habitats, including prairies, forests, and wetlands connected via three miles of trails! An outdoor pavilion provides a meeting place for gathering, snacks, and crafts.
STEM Camps are held at the AriensCo Museum, where campers draw inspiration from 10 different galleries that feature mechanical innovations dating from the late 1800s to the present. Seven hands-on STEM exhibits reinforce principles that campers will integrate into their own projects. The 14,000 sq. ft Museum space is the perfect backdrop to explore, learn and play!
Robotics Camp is a one-day camp that challenges students with Lego robotic activities designed to enhance creativity and build innovative thinkers. Campers will design, create, and program their Lego robots to accomplish tasks that simulate robots that are used in manufacturing.
Bree has a passion for making history and learning fun for audiences of all ages! As a mother of two young boys, she is vested in making sure campers have their best possible summer experience. Bree has an MA in Museum Studies from Johns Hopkins University with over 10 years’ experience in museum education and public programming.
