McWane Science Center Camps make learning an unforgettable adventure that you just can’t experience anywhere else!

In one week of camp, your budding scientist can discover a dinosaur, travel into outer space or explore the ocean floor. Various themes and activities allow children to experience something new each day. Blast off in To Infinity and Beyond or get creative in da Vinci: Arts & Engineering Camp. Dive in to marine biology or dig paleontology. The flexible programs allow you to choose as many programs as you want for your child, from just one session of exploration to full weeks of fun and learning!

McWane Science Center offers 6 weeks of summer fun and learning! Bring your curiosity and sense of wonder for hands-on, minds-on, science and fun this summer! Summer camps offer further inquiry into science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics for children 6 to 13 years old. Campers can learn about the deep oceans, journey into outer space, build robots or spend time with our McWane animals. Join us for these and many more engaging camp themes.
