2019 Summer Camps

Registration Closed

A week of fun and learning awaits your child at McWane Science Center Summer Camp. Weekly camps begin on June 3rd and end on August 2nd. There will be no camps the week of July 1st-5th.

New This Year!

STEM Academy 1 & 2
August 5-9 & 12-16
Get a jump on learning with our STEM Academy Camps! These camps are designed especially for students starting school later in the summer. In STEM Academy Camps 1 & 2, kids will imagine, investigate, problem-solve, practice critical thinking and communication skills through fun and engaging activities. We’ll have an end-of-summer blast exploring Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in the real world. The deadline for registering for the STEM Academy Camps is Monday, July 29.

Sci Girls 4th-8th Grade
June 17-21
This camp is especially designed for girls entering the 4th – 8th grades, who are interested in STEM. The goal is to inspire curiosity and creativity and help girls develop an interest and confidence in STEM through engaging experiments, conversations, and demonstrations led by inspiring female role models. Plus, we’ll have loads of fun at the same time.



Campers should register in the camp of the grade they will be attending in the fall of 2019. 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. Please see the Online Registration FAQs if you need help with registration.
