Join us for summer camp full of hands-on STEM activities that will spark curiosity and inspire campers to generate ideas in science, technology, engineering and mathematics! This summer, we’re offering six, week-long camp experiences, each with a different theme. Campers will be divided into two age groups – rising 1-3 and 4-6 graders – with opportunities to explore the Museum, visit our Dome Theater and participate in a variety of Live Science programs. Pick one week or come for all six for a STEM summer party!
Camps will be held from 9 am – 3 pm, Monday through Friday. Camp fees cover a daily snack, t-shirt, water bottle and all camp activities. Campers will need to bring their own lunch to energize them for our scientific adventures. Post-camp childcare is available to help make these extraordinary experiences possible for all schedules.
Tap into your inner creator at the Science Museum of Virginia’s new maker space, The Forge. Get hands on with various tools from hammers to laser cutters. Learn how to upcycle trash into treasure. Design your own games, prototype a new vehicle, or build a working instrument! Let your imagination take hold as you create to your hearts content.
When: Monday, July 29 through Friday, August 2 from 9 am to 3 pm
