Stupendous Mr. Magichead Show

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Sponsored by:
The MOMS Club of Longmeadow
The Stupendous Mr. Magichead Show is consistently acknowledged as "the funniest children's show around".

Aimed at children ages 3-10 and their families, his quickly-paced costumed character magic show features extensive audience interaction, plenty of clowning around, and trickery that will mystify even the most sophisticated grown-ups, including an actual appearance of Lulu The Magic Bunny in an empty hat!

Mr. Magichead personally guarantees that "your kids will be sitting down, laughing their heads off, for 50 solid minutes".

The performance is followed by 10/15 minutes of bunny petting and photo opportunities.

Anatomy Academy

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Ages 6-11/Entering grades 1-5

In this week-long camp, children will have fun while learning about the scientific equipment they already own—the human body.
Kids will explore the science behind cells, organs, muscles and bones through fun, hands-on activities.

Campers will use micro-slide viewers to see some of the tiny cellular machines that keep our bodies working and will play the "Cell game" to learn about the "stuff" inside cells.

Fun experiments will help campers understand more about their senses, brains,breathing, circulation and digestion. Children may create model cells, make Mad Mucus and a simulated stomach, build simple lung models, assemble a model skeleton, and much more.
