Week of August 1–5

Explore a variety of processes and learn how to use new tools during this week of making! Dive into creative reuse projects and new techniques and technologies as we take over The Forge for the week! Projects will include woodworking, sewing, electronics and more. Come ready to prototype, test and, most importantly, have fun!

Pricing

Summer camp is $250 for members and $300 for non-members. Camp fees include a daily snack, camp t-shirt, water bottle and all camp activities. Campers will need to bring their own lunch to help energize them for our scientific adventures.

Our campers are divided into two groups - rising 1–3 and 4–6 graders - so we can tailor activities for each age group. Camps include opportunities to explore the Science Museum, visit our Dome theater and participate in a variety of Live Science Programs. Campers will also get a chance to experience our summer touring exhibition Planet Shark: Predator or Prey.

Schedule

Camps will be held from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-camp care is available until 5:30 p.m. for $50 per week per child to help make these extraordinary experiences possible for all schedules. Families must register prior to using this service.
