Summer Science Splash Camp is a week-long residential summer camp funded by the II-VI Foundation and hosted by the Science in Motion on the campus of Juniata College. Spend your day performing experiments in the lab and outdoors using the same high-tech equipment college students and research scientists use. During free time enjoy water activities, tennis, swimming, and other splashing competitions. At night, play games or sports, watch movies or talk with new friends. Between daily experiments and nightly events, work with your team to gain points for prizes.

Few colleges have a more attractive campus than Juniata. The 100 acres on College Hill provide a magnificent atmosphere and safe environment. Juniata is easy to find, just off US 22. Driving directions and train information are available at www.juniata.edu/directions.
Camp counselors supervise students in the late afternoons, evenings, and overnight. Staff consists of well-trained Juniata students eager to share their enthusiasm for science and teamwork.
The cafeteria serves youth-friendly food on a daily basis in the summer and can accommodate allergies and vegetarian diets. If you have particular needs, contact us for more information.
