Adventures in Science Camps

Part of Children & Families

A group of students examines a watermelon and records their observations in a notebook.

Adventures in Science summer camps foster an enthusiasm and sense of wonder for the natural world. Using inquiry and critical thinking, campers will engage in the process of science while visiting Museum halls, studying specimens, and hearing from scientists. Every week, children are empowered to ask questions, make observations, collect evidence, and draw conclusions, gaining a new perspective on our planet and beyond.



Onsite summer camps will go on sale in early 2023.  Please check this website for further updates and information regarding summer 2023 program dates, times, and tuition.
