“And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together.”
Science Camp is designed to awaken and encourage a love of science in campers from age 10 through high school. Campers spend their days in classes, helping them discover the intricacies of God’s creation, as revealed through the study of scientific disciplines. We endeavor to find teachers who are experts in their fields and uphold a Biblical view of creation.
Classes are complemented by Bible study and worship, so the focus is always on the One who deserves all of the glory.
There is ample time allowed for fellowship, games and fun as well. Campfires, group games and Gaga ball are popular. Lasting friendships are formed and renewed summer after summer.

Anne Jones is a chemical ecologist, with broad interests in plant biochemistry, insect secondary
metabolism, and plant-insect interactions. During her doctorate, she studied caterpillar effectors that
alter plant green leaf volatile (GLV) profiles during herbivory and discovered a novel effector that
suppressed the emission of these plant volatiles. Her postdoctoral research at VA Tech is focused on
experimental crop domestication that probes yield and defense trade-off in an oilseed plant.
Anne grew up attending many conferences at Machen Retreat and is a science camp alum. She is excited
to come back to science camp and spend a fun week at Machen!
