Outside The Box Labs

2019 DISCOVERY SUMMER CAMPS

This summer we’ve partnered with Allegheny County Parks to offer 5 weeks of Day Camps at North Park. Camps will run from June-August and each camp will be Monday-Friday.

The Outside The Box Labs Summer Camps are DISCOVERY CAMPS where kids can get outdoors and actively learn about the natural sciences. In addition to many environmental science oriented activities, campers will also get to learn the science behind great survival techniques while they experiment and practice how to start a fire, purify drinking water, and build their own shelters!

Get ready to get your hands dirty and your minds working as we combine NATURE, SCIENCE, and SURVIVAL SKILLS for this ADVENTURE packed camp!

Get Sustainable: Learn about solar energy and work with different types of solar cells. We dig deep into the ways humans can harness the energy of the sun, from cooking with solar heat, to generating electricity by constructing solar cells with fruit juice. If plants can use solar energy, so can we!
