They will learn about the respiratory system by building “lungs” with straws and paper bags, and they will build a model of the skeletal system out of clay, toothpicks, and straws. Campers will also learn about the circulatory system, specifically, red and white blood cells, and platelets through an engaging art project. They will discover more about 4 of the 5 senses  (hearing, taste, smell, sight,) by creating games to show how we use our senses and how they work.
