Camp Wonderopolis combines the excitement of summer camp with the joy and pride in achievement – all completely free. When you register as a Camper (kids of all ages) or a Counselor (parents or teachers), you will be able to select your own avatar, follow your own path through six tracks of scientific exploration, and engage in Wonder lessons and test your learning to earn Wonder Cards. Kids who earn all 42 badges will be entered into a prize drawing for a free Kindle Fire.
