The CCA San Diego team is excited to hold this summer camp to expose physics to young students well before they learn it in school. We aim to teach advanced topics that will challenge the students of this camp and encourage them to develop a better understanding of how physics is present in everyday life.

Summer Hours The Physics and Physical Sciences Camp will start June 19th and end June 23rd. More sessions may be opened up to accommodate students. Class sessions will start at 9:00am and end at 2:00pm, totaling 5 hours of fun every day!
Camp Curriculum Brief Overview
Introduce students to concepts of physics and physical sciences, some of which include:
Kinematics and projectile motion
Conservation of energy and momentum
Forces and free body diagrams
Electricity, magnetism, and circuits
Waves and basic nuclear/quantum physics
Simple harmonic motion
Applications of physics to cell biology and groundwater contamination/remediation
This week-long camp includes fun labs that explore the concepts above, such as using kinematics and forces to calculate where a ball will land, building basic circuits and experimentally verifying Ohm's Law, and exploring properties of fluids. There will also be a week-long egg drop project!
9:00am - Camp check-in and icebreakers
9:30am - Lessons on concepts + activities
10:30am - Brief snack break
10:50am - Continuation of lessons
11:15am - Lunch
12:00pm - Laboratory application based on lesson
1:00pm - Work on week-long egg drop project
2:00pm - Pick up time
Laboratory materials: Lab notebooks, magnets, circuits, egg drop materials
Materials students may bring home:
Worksheets and lesson materials for all topics
Summer camp t-shirts
Snack is provided everyday (apples, crackers, etc.)
Lunch can be provided for $7 (you may select lunch options), but students may bring their own lunches (reduce waste!). We will be able to accommodate food allergies (gluten free, vegan, etc.).
Summer Camp Cost The Physics and Physical Sciences Camp is $350 per student for the whole week. All of the above materials are included.
