Ci 5.0 Overnight Camp #1 a Success

Our first week of overnight camp for Ci 5.0, our 2018 camp year, is in the books—and what a week it was! Our theme this year was environmental science and many of our STEM activities are structured around that theme. And, of course, we had our Ci staples—robotics, a tour of the Creation Museum and a secular museum, a trip to the Ark Encounter, zip line rides, delicious food, and accommodations at beautiful Potter’s Ranch

Here are some of the STEM activities campers enjoyed during week one and those coming to weeks two and three can look forward to: 

  1. Global Warming – Campers will learn to use terminology about global warming and climate change correctly. They will be able to discuss the topic from both a biblical and secular worldview.   

  2. Ice Age – Through a scavenger hunt, campers will discover what an ice age is and what causes an ice age. 

  3. Fossils – Campers will discover what a fossil is, how they are formed, and the basics of fossil classification.   

  4. Plastics – For this hands-on activity, the campers’ goal is to determine a good, low-cost compostable way to make a biodegradable fork.  

  5. Waves – Using a wave tank, campers will investigate the relationship between wave velocity and water depth, using an equation to determine if the data they collected was correct. 

  6. Earthquakes – Drawing on the earthquake in Haiti, the campers will investigate earthquake waves.

  7. Process of CO2 and Ocean Acidification – Campers will explore the greenhouse effect and how CO2 is stored in the ocean. 

RJ Ring, one of our counselors at Ci 5.0, also writes our Fact, Future, or Fiction? blogs that look at sci-fi technologies and whether or not they exist (or are possible) presently, will eventually be, or will never be. He wrote about this technology to get our campers and blog readers thinking: 

We’re looking forward to welcoming our next group of excited campers for our second week and third week of overnight camps. If you’re not registered, there’s still time for us to squeeze you in so you won’t miss any of the exciting hands-on activities, biblical apologetics teaching, and fellowship with other campers and counselors.
