Weeklong, half day camps are $100 Members / $130 Non-Members.
Single half day camps (Science Sampler) are $25/half day (full day add-on available for $25/day).
Full day, weeklong camps with First City Art Center are $200 Members / $260 Non-Members.
Our camps are broken into different grade levels so we can best meet the needs of the participants. Camps are designed with the physical (i.e., fine motor) and social development of the students in mind. All students will be challenged at their academic/intellectual level. Therefore, we do not make exceptions to the grade level cut-offs, unless grouping a student with younger kids based on social/physical development is requested.

Science Sampler: These single day camps explore the range of scientific disciplines. A menu of options gives campers a choice for discovery
Science in the Neighborhood: Full Day, Field Trip Camp. Mix math, engineering, science, and stuff with walking field trips to downtown locations. For grades 1-4.
Inventor’s Workshop: Do you have what it takes to innovate? Can you evaluate a product and then turn it into something new and improved? Try your hand at the creative world of engineering innovations. Full Day Camp in Partnership with First City Art Center.
Messlandia: Inspired by the Newberry Award winning book Weslandia, campers will explore creating their own world using everyday and natural materials. This camp focuses on creative thinking and general merriment. We’ve partnered with First City Arts for a full day camp. Half the day will be spent at the MESS Hall with the other half of the day at First City Arts.
Blast Off!: Make it your mission to explore the universe.
Lego Architecture: Build all week long with Lego bricks to construct a well-planned, beautiful city. Building activities will be paired with architecture and engineering activities.
Girls Garage: An all girls camp focusing on science, engineering, coding, and robotics.
Every Day Earth Day: Celebrate our big, wonderful planet. This camp covers everything from weather, geology, biology, and ecosystems.
Lab Ratz: Kids lead the exploration, following their curiosity about math, engineering, and science.
