What does the cost cover?  

The first two camps for students are provided at no cost.

Students wishing to register for 3 or more camps will have an add-on cost. The add-on cost includes two weeks worth of daily instructional content,  a camp crate filled with items needed for sessions, a workbook designed to support the needs of all lessons and activities and additional items for fun including a BGSU T-Shirt.

Geography Strand: Modern and historical maps and other geographic tools are used to analyze how historic events are shaped by geography.
Science

Part I: Identify questions that can be answered through scientific investigations; Design and conduct a scientific investigation; Use appropriate mathematics, tools and techniques to gather data and information; Analyze and interpret data; Develop descriptions, models, explanations and predictions; Think critically and logically to connect evidence and explanations; Recognize and analyze alternative explanations and predictions; and Communicate scientific procedures and explanations.

Part II: Systems can be described and understood by analysis of the interaction of their components. Energy, forces and motion combine to change the physical features of Earth. (Physical Earth, Forces & Motion)
