Uncover mysteries of far-off galaxies

Campers in grades 1 through 6 will explore the mysteries of the cosmos through hands-on science investigations. Topics include The Solar System, the Milky Way, and Life on Other Worlds. Our experienced camp counselors will lead campers through exciting team-building exercises and standards-aligned activities.

These activity-based, week-long day camps meet Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm, with graduation and family activities on Friday evening (circumstances pending.) We enroll campers based on the grade they will enter in the Fall. For example, if your child attends 2nd grade this fall, they should be enrolled in the 1st/2nd camp.

3rd/4th grade

The Milky Way: Campers will start with a tour of our amazing galaxy – the Milky Way – covering things like star birth and death (including the formation of black holes).

Other activities will include hiking, drawing, playing games, and more.
