The Camp Experience

Daily Activities and Schedule

The summer camp experience is specially designed to offer opportunities the school-year classroom cannot, with plenty of individual hands-on activities, supervised exploration, and interactive fun. In addition to classroom experiments and projects, campers will explore different museum exhibits each day, and experience shows in our demonstration theaters throughout the week. A brief description of the daily activities will be provided each Monday for each camp.

Pre and Post Camp Care

For your convenience, we offer pre- and post-camp childcare. This time is supervised. Campers will have individual activity kits or watch educational films for unstructured learning. Drop campers off between 7:30 am and 8:30 am for an additional charge of $30 per week or pick them up between 4:30 pm and 6 pm for an additional $60 per week. Pre and Post Camp drop-off/pick-up is located on the Ground Floor in Group Services.
