From participating in a "sea sand" castle building competition to climbing a coral reef (aka bouldering wall) we'll explore why it's better down where it's wetter - Under the Sea!
We'll learn how a drop of the ocean travels right Behind Your Faucet in your very own home! And Roblox fans will love the survival challenge of what happens when too much water floods your home with in an Enviroscapes activity!
We'll get an up close look at some aquatic friends (hopefully!) through fishing at Benson Lake, create our very own ooey-gooey Sea Slime and have a little fun in the water ourselves at the Splash Pad!
