Our campers will be making new discoveries about the different fields of study they explore and we look forward to the many exclamations of "Eureka!" echoing throughout the halls

Maybe you thought it would be neat to write a book or become a real world superhero! This summer, your child will have the opportunity to explore these and other fields and discover who they want to be at Camp Eureka!
