Summer Camps

SUMMER OF SCIENCE CAMPS 2022

Young scientists, Grades K - 2 & 3 - 5 in Fall 2022, can join us for exciting, interactive science camps all summer long! Camps will stimulate minds, spark curiosity and introduce something new about the world of science and technology.

Our camps are outside, inside, on the exhibit floor and in our high-tech makerspace, STEAMlab, each week! Summer of Science Camps combine unplugged, outdoor activities, creative STEM activities and learning new skills while encouraging collaborative learning and interaction.
