Benilde-St. Margaret’s School in St. Louis Park will offer 18 different summer camps to the public this year.

Science Camp, new this year, will allow students to explore the world of science hands-on. They’ll learn about astronomy and view our nearest star through solar telescopes. They’ll discover how Ancient Romans transported water and race other campers to construct their own water way. They’ll also find out if their engineering designs are all they’re “cracked-up” to be when dropping an egg from a couple of stories up. BSM science teacher Jon Hickman will lead Science Camp July 30-Aug. 2 for boys and girls entering fourth through seventh grade.

“Fun in the Son” Christian service camp will focus on the servant leadership qualities of Jesus, including discussions, service trips, games, art projects, prayer and music. The session (July 23-26) is for boys and girls entering sixth through eighth grade. Sudents in ninth through 10th grade can take part in a Fun in the Son II camp, which has more service. Camp will be led by theology teacher Joel Loecken and campus minister Mike Jeremiah.

Summer Strings orchestra camp is open to students at the beginning level, and those who have played a stringed instrument. The camp, July 16-20, will be led by orchestra teacher Kristina Lantz and other specialists. Open to boys and girls entering fourth through seventh grade.

Drama Camp students will explore pan­tomime, vocal performance, auditioning skills, movement/choreography and stage makeup. A performance showcasing skills learned will be held on the final day of camp. Camp (June 18-22) is open to boys and girls entering third through seventh grades, with Scott Effertz.
