Enrichment Camps for children offered in Dearborn

DEARBORN — The Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department will host a pair of three-day “Engineering for Kids” camps for children ages 4 to 7, and a week-long “Mad Science” camp for children ages 6 to 12 this summer.

“Junior Chemical Engineering,” which meets from 9 a.m. to noon July 25 to 27, introduces young engineers to fundamental concepts of solids, liquids and solutions. Students investigate the properties of several crazy concoctions and make their own samples of bubbles, play dough, flub and more.

The cost per camp is $110 for Ford Community & Performing Arts Center pass holders, $120 for residents and $130 for non-residents.

“Fantastic Discoveries,” a five-day Mad Science camp for children ages 6-12, meets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 15 to 19. In this camp, participants will help solve ecological problems, explore the animal kingdom, investigate scientific concepts involved in all aspects of sports and use secret messages and special codes.

Campers provide a bag lunch each day.

The cost for the “Fantastic Discoveries” camp is $175 for pass holders, $190 for residents and $205 for non-residents.

All three camps will take place at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave. Register at the service desk weekdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
