Camp Chemistry at Shippensburg University

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is proud to host Camp Chemistry. Ship faculty members are instructors and Ship undergraduate students serve as counselors.

The day camp is designed to give elementary students the opportunity to perform a variety of chemistry experiments to teach them basic chemical principles and connect chemistry to their everyday experiences. A typical day at Camp Chemistry could include anything from blowing up gummy bears to making water glow in the dark. Faculty from other departments, like biology, also join us and even bring along some animal friends.
