A week of fun and learning awaits your child at McWane Science Center Summer Camp. Weekly camps begin on June 4th and end on August 8th. There will be no camps the week of July 2nd-6th.

PreK-Kindergarten camps are from 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM. Camps for students entering 1st through 7th grade are 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.

REGISTRATION:
Campers should register in the camps of the grade they will be attending in the fall of 2018. Each of our camps is designed for the skill level of that camp: therefore, grade levels must be observed. Enrollment is limited to ensure a quality experience. Registrants may attend only those camps for which they are registered. Registrations are not transferable. Registration closes the Monday prior to the first day of camp. Please note that PreK-Kindergarten campers must be four years old and potty-trained by June 1st.

Full payment is due at time of registration.
1st-7th grade full day camps $330 per week/Members $280
Pre-K-Kindergarten Half-day camps $165 per week/Members $140
