2017 Science Camp – Energy

Be it solar, wind, water, electricity, heat or just the cup of coffee that gives you that jolt in the morning.   ENERGY is the subject of this year’s Science Camp.

NVCA in conjunction with the Nestucca Valley Elementary school is preparing for our Fifth Annual Science Camp.   We have received a $9.800 grant from Trust Management Services in Waldport, Oregon to help fund this project.

The science camp will be held in July with the tentative dates being July 10th through July 27th.   Each Thursday of the Science Camp,  July 13 and July 20  NVCA volunteers work with the students and instructors on hands on projects.  Volunteers will also assist on a field trip that will be held on the last  Thursday of the science camp, July 27.

In years past, there have been as many as 70 students attending the science camp and can use help from the community.   We encourage those that are interested to come and help out.   If you are interested, contact us at nvcainfo@gmail.com.

Better still, come to our next meeting on Saturday,  June 10th at 10 AM at the Kiawanda Community Center, 34600 Cape Kiwanda Drive.

2016 Science Camp – Focus on Wellness

NVES Students who participated in the 2016 Science Camp will have great stories to tell about their three weeks at Science Camp.  The theme was Wellness and they learned how Energy, Water and Food are important to your health.

The three week camp ran from July 11th through July 28th.   NVES staff and NVCA volunteers organized and ran the science camp for 45 NVES students.  They had hands on experience learning how the heart works as a pump for the body,  why perspiration is important in cooling our systems and why food is so important.

The science camp ended with a field trip to Corvus Landing Farm to learn about farming and food.  They was time for team play before a lunch prepared by  farmer and chef Sandy Porter as this video shows.
