Camp Alpha

Camp Alpha is designed for students that have completed grade four, five, six, seven or eight. Our goals are to provide meaningful, hands-on experiences in the space sciences and to foster the natural curiosity and interest that children have in space exploration.

Camp Alpha offers a Day Camp option for those students wanting to return home each night.

The Overnight option allows campers to stay in classrooms at the Morris Area Elementary School. Regardless of what option campers choose, they will be challenged and given a great STEM learning opportunity.

Within each option, the Camp Alpha program offers two challenge choices. The Challenger Division students will work more independently and will be supplied with various model rocket kits. Challenger Division campers will be encouraged to make modifications, design changes, and are expected to have a strong work ethic.
