Commotion in the Ocean (Entering Grades VPK-6th) (CLOSED)

AAALC will bring Giles Andreae’s book Commotion in the Ocean to life as students learn about the Indian River Lagoon, work with microplastics, dissect ocean animals, inspect organisms and fossils, build and code devices for exploring the ocean, learn about food chains and much more! This camp is a great way to investigate our local ecosystems, better understand the beauty of our oceans and prepare for Shark Week!                      

Minecraft Education: A-maz-ing Mazes  (Entering Grades 1st-8th)  (CLOSED)

Scientific American declared, "...not only is Minecraft immersive and creative, but it is an excellent platform for making almost any subject area more engaging." Enter a world of rules, parameters, levels and goals that require hard work, intense thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills. AAALC uses this popular game to provide an academic setting for students. Campers will take a trip that carries them through various mazes, ultimately creating their own as they complete challenges that require them to think critically and plan ahead. This camp will be a week filled with science, technology, engineering and math skills via an a-maze-ing format!                         
3D Design/Print (Entering Grades 1st-8th)   (CLOSED)                                                 

Students will learn the intricacies of 3D design and printing.  They will find and create models through various available software programs and then prepare the model for printing on a 3D printer by making design adjustments, creating code and managing printer functions. Various project options will be offered and students will bring home a final project at the end of the week. Campers will also be provided with tips/tricks to use at home to continue the design portion of their learning after camp is over.                       

RUSH: Leap Into the Human Body (Partnership: Camp held at RUSH in Jensen)
(Entering Grades 1st-7th )

AAALC and RUSH are teaming up to offer a one of a kind STEAM camp experience. Campers will spend a week at RUSH Trampoline Park in Jensen Beach exploring the science behind our bodies and how they work! They will spend two hours per day jumping and the remainder of the day understanding the miraculous ways our bodies work to provide us with the ability to move. Teachers will incorporate studies of energy, DNA, muscles, blood, the brain, heart and other important organs within the body to provide campers with a clearer understanding of the importance of exercise, health and nutrition to life. Cost includes all jumps, one pair of socks and related course materials. (NOTE: This is an off-site event from 9:00am-3:00pm. No Extended Day is available. Comfortable clothes suitable for jumping and physical activity should be worn. Campers will be dropped off and picked up at RUSH in Jensen Beach. Lunch is available for purchase for $2.50-Pizza or Hot Dog and $5.00 Hamburger or Chicken Sandwich. Both options include a soda. RUSH issued socks must be worn each day. One pair of socks is included for the week. Lost socks can be replaced for a charge of $3.)
