This camp is an extraordinary experience for Scouts full of many STEM based merit badges and over-the-top activities. Scouts will attend one merit badge (over to 50 to choose from!) or one NOVA activity class each day and may have the opportunity to work on other badges in the evening. Afternoon and evenings will include other fun STEM programs and exhibits to experience (drones, 3D printing, things that go boom... you get the idea). If you want more in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, this is the week to be out at camp!
