About High Touch High Tech Science Camp:  Our science summer camp programs are geared for the preschool through sixth grade camper and provide fun and safe science activities for children that will keep their minds active during the summer months. Your inquisitive campers will enjoy, “Doing science, not viewing science,” as they participate in hands-on science experiences that are age and academically appropriate. High Touch High Tech scientists are trained to foster a creative and non-competitive environment in which all campers are encouraged to share their knowledge and ideas while interacting with their peers in our summer camp programs.

All materials are included, and many programs provide take home experiments. Each of your campers will be recognized for their contributions and accomplishments by receiving a science certificate of participation. Our enriching science summer camp activities provide inspiring experiences and opportunities for the curious camper to investigate a wide variety of science topics in ways that will be both meaningful and memorable.

Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp
Dancing Jaguar Inspirations (NYA partner)

Ages 7-12
Session 8: August 8-12, 2022
With a holistic approach to integrating mind, body and spirit, this camp teaches children how to nurture their inner world. We live in a modern society that places value on nurturing the mind and body. Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp teaches children how to nurture their heart and spirit. When children are encouraged to trust their intuition, honor their truth, and speak from the heart, they can develop their inner compass and trust themselves to make choices in high school and beyond that will sustain them. Ancient healing practices and modern holistic techniques are combined to introduce the curriculum using an array of methods such as storytelling, crafts, activities, games and spending time in nature. Children are introduced to guided visualizations to help them identify their inner critic and inner champion, breathing techniques, the law of attraction, an attitude of gratitude, working with chakras and auras, shamanic journeying, mindfulness, discovering power animals, and much more! This unique program offers children a profound opportunity to experience a deeper awareness of who they are while they are having fun and playing games. Dancing Jaguar’s Spirit Camp teaches them about who they are in a non-competitive, supportive environment. To learn more about Dancing Jaguar Inspirations, visit or
