Location: Virginia Beach, VA Area. Coming to a school near you!

About Me (Tammy Kauffman)- I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and taught preschool and Kindergarten for 15 years. Teaching science and art is the coolest job ever! I was born and raised here in Virginia Beach and grew up playing and exploring in the Pungo area! I believe learning should be fun and I strive to achieve a fun hands on learning environment in all my enrichment programs! 

CELEBRATING 11 Years of Exploring!!!

Summer Camp 2024- Registration @ Cape Henry Collegiate- Morning and Afternoon Camps !

Coming January 2024!!!

Rock-It Science Camps

NEW!! Rock-It Science : Willy Wonka Camp
Just like the movie things will get silly as we sample and test our candy making skills! But this camp isn’t just all all about candy, we will create art including some Willy Wonka villages that can be displayed with pride in a sweet spot! We will even mix up some fun chemical reactions inspired by the the crazy world of Willy Wonka!

Backyard Summer Camp 

Okay, so we won’t be in your backyard, but this camp will be full of good old-fashioned backyard fun! This year’s new labs will include making bug catchers, mixing up a batch of mud slime, and designing rain gages! We will finish up the week with a fun indoor obstacle course full of treasures! This will be a week of science, games, and art that you won’t want to miss!

The Great Volcano Experiment

The classic volcano experiment has always been a favorite! Children love to explode things and see them erupt, and we will put this classic experiment to the test. This year each camper will build an individual volcano that they will be able to erupt over and over again! We will build a large group volcano that we will erupt twice this year using a heated reaction and the classic Mento/Coke reaction! Along with testing out various reactions on our volcanos, we will play games, create art, and learn about some real active volcanoes! Sign up today for an explosively good time!

Outer Space 

What’s more fascinating than the great beyond? We will explore the solar system as we conduct science and art labs inspired by outer space. We will stargaze, go on moonwalks, and launch rocket ships! Keep an eye out for any asteroids soaring through space and get ready for a fun, out-of-this-world week! With so much to explore, there are endless things to learn. If you explored with us last year, join us again for all new art and science labs including new additions to our space room!

Super Secret Spy Training Camp 

If you missed out last year on this fun adventurous camp, it’s not too late to get the training you need to earn your Super Spy Status! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to explore glow-in-the-dark science, go on scavenger hunts, and decode clues that lead to top secret messages! Get those spy decoding notebooks out and be ready for some secret agent spy training as we sneak through obstacle courses and use our observation skills to figure out clues to a top secret mystery! Sorry, we can only reveal this all-new mystery to campers with their special agent IDs.

Super Slime Camp

Let there be slime! By far, slime is the most requested science experiment! What’s not fun about slime? It’s slimy, stretching, sometimes bouncy, and the coolest polymer around! Each day we will explore a different type based on all new fun themes. We will do some cool art labs inspired by the day’s theme, too! So no need to ask if we are going to do slime today because we definitely will!

Art Lab!

This year I am excited to introduce the sibling to Rock-It Science, ART LAB! Science is a highly concrete subject in which students rarely have the opportunity to be creative. By integrating art projects into your science lessons, you can create super cool art work and learn some super cool science too! Join us as we create beautiful art inspired by volcanoes, insects, dinosaurs , and more!

Space Camp

If you can’t get enough space or missed the first outer space camp this is the camp for you! This time around we will explore Saturn’s rings, make edible rocket ships, and experiment with galaxy eruptions. We will add a few new surprises to our space room too!

Beach Week Camp

Put on your shades and get ready for some seaside fun. We will explore soapy sea foam, go on a seashell hunt, and make our very own underwater bottle scene. Join us as we celebrate beach life!

Blast Off Camp 

Whether it’s blasting objects through the air or exploring the cosmos, all kids love to see and send things flying! Air rockets, Mento eruptions, baking soda explosions, are just a few ways we will get things soaring. We may even sneak a little engineering lesson in but our campers may not notice because they will be too busy hurling plastic bottles, planes, rockets,and more through the air.

Animal Planet 

Who doesn’t love our big beautiful world of animals. We will go on a wild animal adventure and explore some domestic animals too. Get ready to collect animal badges as we search and learn fun facts about Giraffes, zebras, and many other creatures.

NEW!! Rock-It Science: Super Mario
Join us as we dodge Mario inspired obstacles! We will race to the finish line using balloon powered cars, avoid boulders as we build tall towers and aim marshmallow cannons across the room at Mario targets. Make Mario grow using a fun chemical reaction. We couldn’t have a Super Mario camp without a super obstacle course. Power Up and earn coins to use at our Rock-It Science store on Friday!

Rock-It Science: Wizards Academy

Mix and measure, stir and shake – see what science fun you can make. We will explore and conduct labs that seem magical! We will mix up some magic potions, make wands and design cloaks that would make any wizard proud. Join us as we make colors change and objects shrink! Is it magic or science?

New!! Rock-It Science: Disney Days

Join us for the happiest camp on earth, Disney Days! We will produce Monster’s Inc. slime, mix up Snow White snow, and create an obstacle course worthy of The Incredibles. When you wish upon a star anything is possible!

Rock-It Science: Superhero Camp 

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Kryptonite Slime! If you love everything superhero, this is the camp for you. This year we will design and create our own superheroes inspired by our favorites! Join us as we design capes, mask, and conduct all new superhero inspired labs. Calling all boys and girls, we need your super powers! A super hero has lost something valuable and we need heroes to save the day! Sign up today!

Rock-It Science : Rainforest Explorations

The Amazon Rainforest is known to be home to 427 mammal species, 1,300 bird species, 378 species of reptiles, and more than 400 species of amphibians. Join us as we create mini rainforests models, mix up forest slime, and make it rain! The possibilities are endless when you explore the rainforest!

NEW!! Rock-It Science - Holidays in July
Every child loves a good holiday celebration but what if we combined some of their favorite traditions all in one camp! Join us as we get inspired by some popular holiday activities. We will erupt pumpkins, mix up some patriotic explosive foam, and send colorful hearts swirling. Happy Holidays in July!
