Vacation Exploration Camps
April 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - April 13, 2018 @ 5:00 pm$62 – $68
Kids have FUN on school vacation at the the Connecticut Science Center‘s Vacation Exploration Camps! Campers in grades 1-6 will experience hands-on science enrichment through fun and engaging activities. Camps include structured activities with our STEM Educators, as well as supervised free time to explore the Science Center’s galleries and exhibits.
We offer Day Camps called Vacation Exploration Camps during school vacation as well as week-long programs in the summer. Each camp’s theme helps develop science concepts, guiding campers to greater understanding of science material and its application to the real world. Kids can explore a different science theme at each camp!
