Curious about how things work and the world around us? Young explorers ages 6-11 will investigate the Earth, outer space, and beyond through hands-on science, art, and play. We will examine the Universe, conduct STEM experiments, and adventure outdoors. Get ready to discover science that’s out of this world.



All campers must register online.
Camp has a one-week repeating program. Parents are encouraged to select preferred dates, but only one session will be assigned per camper.
