Can you use photo paper to create art from the sun? Explore graphic design and use technology to create art. Join us for this action-packed week where we delve into the science behind art.


Summer camp is $250 per child per week 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.


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.
