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. Participants explore nature and science through demonstrations, hands-on activities, and experiments in the museum and out in the field. Our intensive and content-rich camps are designed to be engaging and provide high quality science experiences. 

Scholarship assistance is available. Members of the Friends of the Museum at the household/family level and above, and their immediate family members, receive a 10 percent discount on summer camps.
