Carnegie Science Center camp instructors are professional teachers and college seniors majoring in science or education, assisted by college students with documented experience working with children. Camps are designed by camp instructors and full-time Carnegie Science Center professionals to be age-appropriate, stimulating, and exciting. All summer camp staff members–instructors and assistants—have passed thorough background checks.
The number of children in each camp session varies, but we make sure that an adequate number of adults are on hand for each group. The student: teacher ratio for each camp is 12:1 for ages 6–14, and 7:1 for ages 4–5.
Camp registration fees include all scheduled activities, instruction, plenty of time to explore the Science Center, and a summer camp T-shirt. Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh members enjoy discounted fees. Fees vary by length of camp; camps with field trips may have additional costs.
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Call 412.237.3400 for more information.
