Follow the trail in a high-tech scavenger hunt, get muddy while learning about wetland creatures, dissect a squid, dig for fossils, launch a rocket, or solve a mystery at the museum in our one-day Summer Science Camps for ages 8-11.

Our intensive and content-rich camps are designed to be engaging and provide high quality science experiences.
