Adventure Science Center is excited to unveil new camp themes for the upcoming season. This summer will be filled with endless “oohs and aghs” for students finishing kindergarten through 6th grade. Using subjects like engineering, chemistry, and physics, camp themes examine the world of Harry Potter, our amazing planet, and even how to help Sherlock Holmes solve mysteries using the periodic table.

Each week will be full of fun and sure to amaze your budding scientists. Campers will have time to explore the museum, watch planetarium shows, experience live science demonstrations, and participate in hands-on experiments and crafts all while meeting new friends and fellow science enthusiasts.

During Earth Explorers (May 31 – June 4 & July 5 – 9), campers will take a journey to different habits around the world while learning about biology and geology. From the tallest mountain to the deepest ocean, campers will become Earth experts.

Join the hunt for It’s Elemental, My Dear Watson (June 28 – July 2 & August 2 – 6) as the game is afoot! Using the periodic table of elements, campers will solve clues, decipher codes, and hone their observation skills by becoming advanced super sleuths.

Grab your proverbial popcorn and get ready for a week of movie magic during Science Goes to the Movies (June 21 – 25 & July 26 – 30). Campers will take an in-depth look at the science behind the movie magic from sound effects to tricky camera angles in franchises like Jurassic Park, Star Wars, and more! 

All aboard the Hogwarts Express for Wizarding World of Science (June 14 – 18 & July 19 – 23). Each day will be themed after a class at Hogwarts and campers will learn how to care for magical creatures, conquer potions, and compete in a tri-wizard tournament all while learning about the real-life science that inspired Harry Potter’s magical world.  

During Behind the Scenes Science (June 7 – 11, July 12 – 16, & August 9 – 13) camp instructors will throw open the doors and pull back the curtain to teach campers what it is like to work at Adventure Science Center. This week, campers will create and develop exhibits and build and test activities while learning how to create unforgettable science-inspired memories.

Adventure Science Center is committed to providing a safe and fun environment for your camper, so COVID-19 guidelines will be maintained. Full details can be found at Camp parents also have the option to add on before and aftercare for a small, additional fee. Spots are limited and filling fast, so register soon!
