Parents: Spots still open for Shipwreck Camp 2016

Camp positions still are available for the Leonard Gelfand STEM Center’s Shipwreck Camp 2016, which is open to local children ages 12-15.

The camp, held weekdays July 11-22 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., will give campers the chance to participate in a virtual search for shipwrecks in Lake Erie.

Campers also will:

  • Read novels related to exploration;
  • Meet local experts;
  • Build remotely operated vehicles for underwater exploration;
  • Use the tools of a scientist to conduct field research; and
  • Immerse themselves in an introduction to SCUBA.

The camp costs $530, which includes a non-refundable application fee.

Lunch and snacks will be provided at the camp.
