Happy Spring Break! Camp Infinity

Happy Spring Break!

The month of March means spring break for most folks around the country. It’s a great opportunity to spend some time as a family, maybe take a trip somewhere, or get a head start on spring cleaning or gardening. But, by the time spring break ends and the kids are back in school with a regular routine, many moms are wondering, “What am I going to do to keep these kids busy and productive all summer?” That can be quite the challenge! One mom, whose boys are regular campers each summer at Camp Infinity, summed it up this way and ...

Fact, Fiction, or Future: Ready Player One Stories

Fact, Fiction, or Future: Ready Player One

Introduction Ever since the printing of the first novel, authors have imagined vast, impossible worlds filled with a myriad of fascinating characters. For many years these creations resided only in the minds of readers. Then came the question: Could these worlds be made real? Not just real to the mind of the reader, but a literal world you could feel and enjoy? A whole new topic began to make its way into science fiction: virtual reality. Soon novels, films, and videogames began to explore the concept of what such a virtual world could be like and what consequences it could ...

Where Are They Now? Camp Infinity

Where Are They Now?

It’s so neat each year to see how God takes a group of college students, with very different backgrounds, and knits them close together as they serve Him by serving our campers. Here’s a look at how God is using them today.  Becca (Ci 1.0 & 2.0) - I’m teaching high school math in MD and having a blast! Sean (Ci 3.0) - I am currently working as a laboratory technician at a doctor’s office where I primarily draw blood and perform tests on biological samples, and I am planning on continuing my education to become a medical laboratory scientist. ...

What is 5.0 Theme? Camp Infinity

What is 5.0 Theme?

Each summer our Program Team creates new STEM activites. Before we do this we decide on a new theme. For example, last year (Ci 4.0) our theme was Space Exploration. The year prior to that (Ci 3.0) it was Energy. Because our campers are so curious and like to figure things out, rather than simply announce the theme, we prefer to give clues by asking questions. So here are some questions. See if you can figure out the 5.0 theme from these questions. • Described as “the most alien-looking place on earth”, nearly 700 plant species on this island are ...

Books for Budding Scientists Camp Infinity

Books for Budding Scientists

Wrapping up something to read and putting it under the tree is always a good idea—you can never have too many books! Here are some new resources from our friends over at Answers in Genesis that will make a great gift for your budding scientist: • Replacing Darwin. This new book from Harvard-trained Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson makes an audacious claim—to replace Darwin’s idea of biological evolution! Using genetics (a field Darwin had no knowledge of but which is fundamental to the question of the origin of species), Dr. Jeanson shows that evolution is failing the gold test of science—making predictions—but ...

What's a Smart Kid Look Like? Camp Infinity

What's a Smart Kid Look Like?

This is what I share with parents when I have the privilege to tell them about our unique STEM & apologetics camps. At Camp Infinity we believe smart kids have 2 distinct characteristics that makes them smart. They are: an appetite to learn keep trying attitude Give us a child who loves to learn and doesn't easily give up and we will have a blast with them. They will love our teachers and counselors and hands on STEM activities. They will come home and say things like the following (comments from past campers and parents): My daughter is intelligent, curious, loves ...

Camp Infinity’s “Infinitude Award” and a House Fire Tragedy Stories

Camp Infinity’s “Infinitude Award” and a House Fire Tragedy

I recently travelled back to Northern Kentucky from my home in Greenville, South Carolina to finish up a few things from Ci 4.0 and start making preparations for Ci 5.0—we have to start our plans a year in advance! As I was heading home, I happened to check my email and saw a message from a camper’s mom. Here’s what she wrote: We had a house fire recently and we lost a lot including our pets—praise God, we are all ok. My son is upset about his wooden Camp Infinity [Infinitude Award] that they got during the closing ceremonies and ...

Academic Scholarships for Camp Infinity Camp Infinity

Academic Scholarships for Camp Infinity

Like most camps, we also offer scholarships. But a quick Google search shows that most camps are actually giving out financial aid. Of course, there is nothing wrong with that, we also offer financial aid, but even our financial aid requires campers to do at least one academic scholarship project. You see, we believe, the type of campers for which our programs are best-suited, are "smart" kids. At Ci we believe a smart kid is one that 1) loves to learn 2) is persistent at figuring things out. As such, we give ALL of our campers, those financially needy and those ...

Sign up for more information to be part of the story God is writing at Camp Infinity. A unique story of faith + STEM + camp. Here’s what some of our counselors had to say about Ci 4.0: The size of the staff was great! I've been in a staff size of more than 80 people, and I could really only get to know a few people and many cliques formed. The size of this staff could really get to know each other well, which also helps when working together and we could all really go to each other for anything. ...

Ci Father Reveals His Heart Stories

Ci Father Reveals His Heart

This time of year, several things all come together to make Camp Infinity a very special experience for our campers. The philosophy, program and people intersect along with the "stuff" needed to make it all happen - T-shirts, cinch bags, STEM activity supplies, robots, ipads, computers, water bottles and much much more. For a camp director this can be a very busy and stressful time. What a blessing when I received the following email list this one from one of our parents, thank us for starting Ci. Seems the Lord knows just when this type of encouragement is needed. This ...

Thankfulness and Trust Camp Infinity

Thankfulness and Trust

Each year I trust God to bring together what He wants for a successful camp–people, program, place. It's an exciting process to be part of as we see how he connects us with counselors, teachers, a program manager and most of all campers.  I am thankful for the team He has selected. We start our training camp this Sunday evening. It'll be the first time the entire team comes together. They are extra excited because we're getting to stay right across the street from Ark Encounter.  I'm thankful for the program the team is put to gather. Space Exploration will ...

What happens to your brain when you have fun? Camp Infinity

What happens to your brain when you have fun?

According to neurologist (and educator) Judy Willis, “The highest-level executive thinking, making of connections, and ‘aha’ moments are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of ‘exuberant discovery,’ where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.”  When our brains respond to laughter, our increased volume in breathing causes endorphins, adrenaline, and dopamine to be released. As a result, students are more alert and the information that’s being presented to them is attached to their memories as a positive emotional event.  One of our favorite things about STEM (science, technology, engineering, ...

Bill Nye, The Consistently Inconsistent Guy Camp Infinity

Bill Nye, The Consistently Inconsistent Guy

Bill Nye, “the Science Guy,” an engineer turned comedian from the hit 1990’s kids show, recently returned to TVs everywhere with his new Netflix series Bill Nye Saves the World. This is not a kids’ show (Netflix rated it TV-14) and it certainly doesn’t come across as one (there’s plenty of vulgar and crude content and language). During his show Bill Nye made many disturbing, and often politically driven, statements with very little science. But one thing he, and one of his panelists, said was quite shocking. But let’s back up for some behind-the-scenes information you might not know. Last ...

Bill Nye shares his life philosophy with our campers Camp Infinity

Bill Nye shares his life philosophy with our campers

This past summer (Ci 3.0, 2016), Bill Nye stopped by the Creation Museum and seemed somewhat surprised to meet 46 STEM campers. He noticed their Ci t-shirts. Here is a 3 minute clip where our campers engaged with Mr Nye in the Starting Points Room. This is where we compare the 2 world-views of Creation and Evolution as they deal with important life questions like "Why do we die?", "Why are we here?", etc. Listen carefully to his answers and the camper responses.  Read more about his special visit in this Ci blog.   

3 Ways Grandparents Can Invest in STEM-Minded Grandkids Stories

3 Ways Grandparents Can Invest in STEM-Minded Grandkids

Some grandparents are as tech-savvy as they come. When visiting their grandkids, they whip out an iPhone or iPad, snap some selfies with their grandkids, upload them to Facebook, and even email them to Aunt Dorothy in Arizona with nary a problem. Other grandparents…not so much—they don’t even own a smart phone and Twitter is what birds do. But whether you’re a grandparent who’s on Snapchat and can walk circles around your grandkids in Bejeweled, or you don’t even know how to open that email account your grandson set up for you, as a grandparent you have can have a ...

Camp Infinity: “One of the Best Opportunities I Have Ever Been Given” Camp Infinity

Camp Infinity: “One of the Best Opportunities I Have Ever Been Given”

One of the exciting things about directing a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) camp is seeing the passion our campers have for what they are learning. Being around other young people with the same interests as them brings out a great deal of enthusiasm and builds lasting friendships and memories. It can even help give them focus on what they want to pursue as they continue in their education. And, of course, what they are learning is in the context of a biblical worldview and apologetics training. That’s what makes Camp Infinity (Ci) really unique! Robert was a camper ...

Out of Balance? Stories

Out of Balance?

Many of us have experienced some sort of motion sickness. Whether it’s in an automobile or a fast moving boat, there are certain precautions that help “reign-in” the symptoms. Medication, deep breathing, and other methods can help. Space Adaptation Syndrome (SAS) is different in that gravity plays a crucial role in our spatial orientation. While traveling in a weightless environment like space, it can be difficult for astronauts to adapt to the different physiological processes that help them keep their balance. Symptoms of SAS include nausea (similar to what we experience when we have motion sickness), the feeling of being disoriented, ...

Your young person will be strengthened in their faith as they discover more about God’s creation with other like-minded young people. Talk about a memorable experience!

A Homeschool Convention for Everyone in Your Family Camp Infinity

A Homeschool Convention for Everyone in Your Family

Over the past two decades, the homeschool movement has gone from being a “counter-cultural” practice to the preferred way millions of families choose to educate their young people. More and more, it’s not just the select few Christians who have no other options, except to perhaps enroll their children in the local public school. Both believers and non-Christians alike, are holding to the belief that education begins in the home, and that home is their preferred choice in educating the next generation. As more and more people choose home education, more and more secular thought is being promoted to the ...

Some of the favorite STEM activities were the following: Energy Theater - Campers acted out energy transformations and transfers as a unit of energy. Solar Oven - Campers designed and created an object that would use the energy from the sun to cook s’mores. Food Energy ...

While each of you fit the first part of this definition, you have allocated to Ci some of your financial capital, we would agree that the second part of the definition does not fit this context.
